NACK!

Do not understand why you have to introduce a meaningful name
here - it's used just inner a function, which can not help to
improve a readability of the code at all.

What i suggested is renaming kvm_mmu_flush_tlb() since it's a
API used in multiple files - a good name helps developer to
know what it's doing and definitely easier typing.
