This is a commit scheduled for the next v2.6.34 longterm release.
If you see a problem with using this for longterm, please comment.

commit 7899891c7d161752f29abcc9bc0a9c6c3a3af26c upstream.

There's a race window in xen_drop_mm_ref, where remote cpu may exit
dirty bitmap between the check on this cpu and the point where remote
cpu handles drop request. So in drop_other_mm_ref we need check
whether TLB state is still lazy before calling into leave_mm. This
bug is rarely observed in earlier kernel, but exaggerated by the
commit 831d52bc153971b70e64eccfbed2b232394f22f8
("x86, mm: avoid possible bogus tlb entries by clearing prev mm_cpumask after switching mm")
which clears bitmap after changing the TLB state. the call trace is as below:
