Subject: [PATCH v2 1/3] x86: Move DEBUG_TLBFLUSH option.

CONFIG_DEBUG_TLBFLUSH was added in 'commit 3df3212f9722 ("x86/tlb: add
tlb_flushall_shift knob into debugfs")' to support tlb_flushall_shift
knob. The knob was removed in 'commit e9f4e0a9fe27 ("x86/mm: Rip out
complicated, out-of-date, buggy TLB flushing")'.  However, the debug
option was never removed from Kconfig. It was reused in commit
'9824cf9753ec ("mm: vmstats: tlb flush counters")' but the commit text
was never updated accordingly.

Update the Kconfig option description as per its current usage.

Take this opprtunity to make this kconfig option a common option as it
touches the common vmstat code. Introduce another arch specific config
HAVE_ARCH_DEBUG_TLBFLUSH that can be selected to enable this config.
