So explaination is that this is a temporary step all this code is
remove in the second patch. It was done this way in this patch to
minimize the diff within the next patch.

I did this because i wanted to do the convertion in 2 steps the
first step i convert all the listener of mmu notifier and in the
second step i convert all the call site that trigger a mmu notifer.

I did that to help people reviewing only the part they care about.

Apparently it end up confusing people more than it helped :)

Do people have strong feeling about getting this code that is
deleted in the second patch fix in the first patch anyway ?

I can respin if so but i don't see much value in formating code
that is deleted in the serie.

Thank you for reviewing

Cheers,
Jérôme
