I have started working on this approach. But the changes are a bit more invasive
and looks more like suited for 4.5. We could push this series(which doesn't change
the current behavior as it is in 4.4-rc3, except for the code movement) to fix
the ASID sanity check and introduce the synchronisation part in 4.5.
What do you think ?
