mm,vmacache: optimize overflow system-wide flushing

For single threaded workloads, we can avoid flushing and iterating through
the entire list of tasks, making the whole function a lot faster,
requiring only a single atomic read for the mm_users.

* Single threaded tasks need not iterate the entire

* since the mm's seqnum was increased and don't have
* to worry about other threads' seqnum. Current's
* flush will occur upon the next lookup.
