[PATCH 5.15 22/83] powerpc/64s/radix: dont need to broadcast IPI for radix pmd collapse flush

commit bedf03416913d88c796288f9dca109a53608c745 upstream.

The IPI broadcast is used to serialize against fast-GUP, but fast-GUP will
move to use RCU instead of disabling local interrupts in fast-GUP. Using
an IPI is the old-styled way of serializing against fast-GUP although it
still works as expected now.

And fast-GUP now fixed the potential race with THP collapse by checking
whether PMD is changed or not. So IPI broadcast in radix pmd collapse
flush is not necessary anymore. But it is still needed for hash TLB.
