  powerpc/pseries: Fix vector5 in ibm architecture vector table (2018-03-06 23:05:38 +1100)

powerpc fixes for 4.16 #5

One notable fix to properly advertise our support for a new firmware feature,
caused by two series conflicting semantically but not textually.

There's a new ioctl for the new ocxl driver, which is not a fix, but needed to
complete the userspace API and good to have before the driver is in a released

Finally three minor selftest fixes, and a fix for intermittent build failures
for some obscure platforms, caused by a missing make dependency.

Thanks to:
  Alastair D'Silva, Bharata B Rao, Guenter Roeck.
