Revert "defer cr3 reload when doing pud_clear()" since I'm going to
replace it.

- * arch/x86/mm/hugetlbpage.c:huge_pmd_unshare() - the call to
- * this is followed by a flush_tlb_range, which on x86 does a
- * full tlb flush.
+ * XXX I don't think we need to worry about this here, since
+ * when clearing the pud, the calling code needs to flush the
