Hi all,

After merging the powerpc tree, today's linux-next build (powerpc64
allnoconfig) failed like this:

arch/powerpc/kernel/irq.o: In function `.replay_system_reset':
irq.c:(.text+0x10): undefined reference to `.ppc_save_regs'

Caused by commit

  78adf6c214f0 ("powerpc/64s: Implement system reset idle wakeup reason")

I have applied the following fix patch:
