[PATCH] lib/xz: Fix powerpc build with KERNEL_XZ

The cleanup added a dependency on include/linux, which broke the PowerPC
boot wrapper/decompresser when KERNEL_XZ is enabled:

  BOOTCC  arch/powerpc/boot/decompress.o
 In file included from arch/powerpc/boot/../../../lib/decompress_unxz.c:233,
                 from arch/powerpc/boot/decompress.c:42:
 arch/powerpc/boot/../../../lib/xz/xz_crc32.c:18:10: fatal error:
 linux/crc32poly.h: No such file or directory
  #include <linux/crc32poly.h>

The powerpc decompressor is a hairy corner of the kernel. Even while building
a 64-bit kernel it needs to build a 32-bit binary and therefore avoid including
files from include/linux.

We need to clean up the powerpc boot decompresser but that work will be
more involved than we would include in a late -rc. Please consider
merging this fix for 4.19. Thanks!
