I could do a pre-patch that introduces guest_flush_tlb_mask as a
simple wrapper around flush_tlb_mask and replace the callers that I
modify in this patch. Then this patch would only introduce
FLUSH_HVM_ASID_CORE and modify guest_flush_tlb_mask to use it when

It might make it more complicated to see which callers require the
ASID flush, but if you think it's better I can arrange the patches in
that way.

Thanks, Roger.
