Yes, I knew this was coming. I think it is okay to multiplex on
TIF_NOITFY_RESUME. However, I think it would be cleaner and likely
more efficient to add yet another TIF flags for perfmon instead of
adding the pfm_needs_checking field. That new TIF flag would not have
to be in the low 7 bits. It could be higher because it would not be
checked by the assembly code but rather in do_notify_resume_user().
The TIF limitation is just in the assembly code.

Any comments?
