This patchset include patches for supporting 64TB with ppc64. I haven't booted
this on hardware with 64TB memory yet. But they boot fine on real hardware with
less memory. Changes extend VSID bits to 38 bits for a 256MB segment
and 26 bits for 1TB segments.

Changes from V6:
 * rebase to latest upstream (5b716ac728bcc01b1f2a7ed6e437196602237c27)

Changes from v5:
 * Address review feedback

Changes from v4:
 * Drop patch "arch/powerpc: properly offset the context bits for 1T segemnts"
   based on review feedback
 * split CONTEXT_BITS related changes from patch 12
 * Add a new doc update patch

Changes from v3:
 * Address review comments.
 * Added new patch to ensure proto-VSID isolation between kernel and user space

Changes from V2:
 * Fix few FIXMEs in the patchset. I have added them as separate patch for
   easier review. That should help us to drop those changes if we don't agree.

Changes from V1:
* Drop the usage of structure (struct virt_addr) to carry virtual address.
  We now represent virtual address via vpn which is virtual address shifted
  right 12 bits.
