mm, mmu_notifier: annotate mmu notifiers with blockable invalidate callbacks
Commit 4d4bbd8526a8 ("mm, oom_reaper: skip mm structs with mmu notifiers") prevented the oom reaper from unmapping private anonymous memory with the oom reaper when the oom victim mm had mmu notifiers registered. The rationale is that doing mmu_notifier_invalidate_range_{start,end}() around the unmap_page_range(), which is needed, can block and the oom killer will stall forever waiting for the victim to exit, which may not be possible without reaping. That concern is real, but only true for mmu notifiers that have blockable invalidate_range_{start,end}() callbacks. This patch adds a "flags" field to mmu notifier ops that can set a bit to indicate that these callbacks do not block. The implementation is steered toward an expensive slowpath, such as after the oom reaper has grabbed mm->mmap_sem of a still alive oom victim.
