The function flush_tlb is called to invalidate the TLBs for the current
domain when the stage-2 page tables are modified.

On ARMv8, the instruction "tlbi vmalle1is" (resp. "tlbi vmalle1") will
invalidate stage 1 entries associated to the current VMID (see D4-1811 in
ARM DDI 0487A.j).

Given that an implementation is allowed to cache separately stage 1 and
stage 2 translation (see D4.7.1), the instructions will not remove stage
2 entries when the translation is not combined in a single entry.
This will result the TLBs to hold invalid entries and possibly multiple
entries using the same VA.

Use "tlbi vmalls12e1is" (resp. "tlbi vmalls12e1"), to flush both stage
1 and 2 entries when the domain p2m is changed.

Also modify flush_tlb_local to invalidate stage 1 and 2 for the local
TLBs. Note that this function is used in the instruction abort path
before translating a GVA to a IPA. As far as I understand is to avoid a
guest poisoning the DTLB when memacces is in use. We might be able to
only invalidate stage 1 entries. However, I choose the safest way for now
(i.e invalidating stage 1 and 2 entries). We would need to introduce a
new set of helpers when we will want to restrict it.

    This would need to be backported on any version of Xen currently
    supported (IIRC think up to Xen 4.5).

    Without this patch, stage 2 TLBs won't be flushed if the TLBs
    cache intermediate translations entries (IPA -> PA).

    Changes in v2:
