	This patch series has patches for POWER DSCR fixes, improvements,
in code documentaion, kernel support user documentation and selftest based
test cases. It has got five test cases which are derived from Anton's DSCR
test bucket which can be listed as follows.

(1) http://ozlabs.org/~anton/junkcode/dscr_default_test.c
(2) http://ozlabs.org/~anton/junkcode/dscr_explicit_test.c
(3) http://ozlabs.org/~anton/junkcode/dscr_inherit_exec_test.c
(4) http://ozlabs.org/~anton/junkcode/dscr_inherit_test.c
(5) http://ozlabs.org/~anton/junkcode/user_dscr_test.c

NOTE1: Anton's original inherit exec test expected the child to have system
default DSCR value instead of the inherited DSCR value from it's parent.
But looks like thats not the case when we execute the test, it always
inherits it's parent's DSCR value over the exec call as well. So I have
changed the test program assuming its correct to have the inherited DSCR
value in the fork/execed child program. Please let me know if thats not
correct and I am missing something there.

Changes in V4:
- Restoring the system DSCR default value in test cases before exiting
- Removed new-line from all the perror() calls
- Some minor cosmetic changes to the test cases
- Added Anton's SOB to the above mentioned five derived test cases

Changes in V3:
- Minor changes to last couple of sysfs test cases
- Added .gitignore file for the new test directory

Changes in V2: (https://lkml.org/lkml/2015/1/13/148)
- Updated the thread struct DSCR value inside mtspr facility exception path
- Modified the in code documentation to follow the kernel-doc format
- Added seven selftest based DSCR related test cases under powerpc
