Excluding the accessed handling it's ok, for the accessed handling I'm
doubtful. Could you check if this was introduced recently (for instance by
the introduction of flush_range_common, which IIRC is recent) or if it's old?

For instance, in latest 2.4, and/or in 2.6.9. If this is a regression the fix
for accessed handling can be merged too.
Inform me of my mistakes, so I can keep imitating Homer Simpson's "Doh!".
