This patches series adds support for the POWER9 Load Monitor
instruction (ldmx) based on work from Jack Miller.

The first patch is a clean up of the FSCR handling.  The second patch
adds the actual ldmx support to the kernel.  The third patch is a
couple of ldmx selftests.

  - PATCH 1/3:
    - Change FSCR cleanup more extensive.
  - PATCH 2/3:
    - Moves FSCR_LM clearing to new init_fscr().
  - PATCH 3/3:
    - Added test cases to .gitignore.
    - Removed test again PPC_FEATURE2_EBB since it's not needed.
    - Added parenthesis on input parameter usage for LDMX() macro.
