That is fine but, I think you need to take this fix anyway (or something 
similar), because there _IS_ a TLB flush bug in that code path. I saw it 
when I wrote the original path, but discounted it assuming that the 
original authors had more insight on the hardware than I did.

Whether the fix takes the suggest form or another, the cont bit changes 
are only irritating an existing bug, not causing it.
