This patchset is used to support kgdb/gdb on book3e.


* Make sure we cover CONFIG_PPC_BOOK3E_64 safely
* Use LOAD_REG_IMMEDIATE() to load properly
	the value of the constant expression in load debug exception stack 
* Copy thread infor form the kernel stack coming from usr
* Rebase latest powerpc git tree

* Copy thread info only when we are from !user mode since we'll get kernel stack
  coming from usr directly.
* remove save/restore EX_R14/EX_R15 since DBG_EXCEPTION_PROLOG already covered
* use CURRENT_THREAD_INFO() conveniently to get thread.
* fix some typos
* add a patch to make sure gdb can generate a single step properly to invoke a
  kgdb state.
* add a patch to if we need to replay an interrupt, we shouldn't restore that
  previous backup thread info to make sure we can replay an interrupt lately
  with a proper thread info.
* rebase latest powerpc git tree

This patchset is used to support kgdb for book3e.
