The patch series is meant to fix a few issues with kexec/crash working
on mpc85xx parts

v1: initial version

v2: Fix a typo when decremeting a wait condition twice leading to 
never showing when we fail waiting for extra cpus to shutdown

Moved around code so the crash and kexec shutdown code paths both
work correctly - this was exposed by the above fix

Disable modifying the PAGE_OFFSET and PHYSICAL_START when we build
a crash kernel w/ relocation enabled. We don't need to change these 
values as a default action.
