This is a temporary step i dediced to do the convertion in 2 steps,
first i convert the callback to use the structure so that people
having mmu notifier callback only have to review this patch and do
not get distracted by the second step which update all the mm call
site that trigger invalidation.

In the final result this code disappear. I did it that way to make
the thing more reviewable. Sorry if that is a bit confusing.

This get remove in the next patch, i can respawn with the init
function but this is a temporary step like explain above.

Thank you for reviewing.
