Hi Linus !

Here's a pair of powerpc fixes for 3.15 which are also going to stable.

One's a fix for building with newer binutils (the problem currently only
affects the BookE kernels but the affected macro might come back into
use on BookS platforms at any time). Unfortunately, the binutils maintainer
did a backward incompatible change to a construct that we use so we have
to add Makefile check.

The other one is a fix for CPUs getting stuck in kexec when running single
threaded. Since we routinely use kexec on power (including in our newer
bootloaders), I deemed that important enough.


The following changes since commit 8050936caf125fbe54111ba5e696b68a360556ba:

  powerpc: irq work racing with timer interrupt can result in timer interrupt hang (2014-05-12 14:29:28 +1000)
