Paul mentioned that BOOK3S always had DAR value set on alignment
interrupt. And the patch is to enable/collect correct DAR value when
running with Little Endian PR guest. Now to limit the impact and to
enable Little Endian PR guest, I ended up doing the conditional code
only for book3s 64 for which we know for sure that we set DAR value.
