linux-next: manual merge of the powerpc tree with Linus' tree

Hi all,

Today's linux-next merge of the powerpc tree got a conflict in
arch/powerpc/include/asm/sections.h between commit b18db0b80867 ("KVM
guest: Make pv trampoline code executable") from the  tree and commit
07de8377f748 ("powerpc: Fix ABIv2 issue with
dereference_function_descriptor") from the powerpc tree.

I fixed it up (see below) and can carry the fix as necessary (no action
is required).
