This set of patches implements partition migration capability in the kernel.  With this
patch partition migration is done by writing the stream id (generated by the HMC managing
the system) to a new sysfs file.  This then performs the migration of the partition
and the necessary device tree updating and firmware activation required post-migration.

The first two patches simply export routines needed by the migration and device tree
updating code.  The third patch contains the implementation of migration and device
tree updating.
