I'd come across similar errors and it turned out that the #defines
used in the instruction weren't defined for the processor. For eg,
I'd a mtspr SPRN_SXXXX, r0 and SPRN_SXXXX wasn't defined for the
processor I was using. A grep -r on the symbol used in the instruction
in include/asm-ppc would help.
