[POWERPC] Fix CPU hotplug when using the SLB shadow buffer
Before we register the SLB shadow buffer, we need to invalidate the
entries in the buffer, otherwise we can end up stale entries from when
we previously offlined the CPU.
This does this invalidate as well as unregistering the buffer with
PHYP before we offline the cpu. Tested and fixes crashes seen on
970MP (thanks to tonyb) and POWER5.

[POWERPC] efika: add phy-handle property for fec_mpc52xx
The new network driver fec_mpc52xx will not work on efika because the
firmware does not provide all required properties.
http://www.powerdeveloper.org/asset/by-id/46 has a Forth script to
create more properties. But only the phy stuff is required to get a
This should go into the kernel because its appearently
impossible to boot the script via tftp and then load the real boot
binary (yaboot or zimage).
