IMHO, it is more preferable to change kernel thread creation mechanism adapting to
other architecture(in stead of tweaking exception handling) to solve the issue at least.
Of course, cleaning up the exception codes to adapt to ppc64  is also preferable from
code maintenance view.

Anyway, please try to apply the patch as follow:
