[PATCH] RTAS spam reduction

It seems my first patch didn't go too far, so here is a revised version
of the rtas spam patch.  The big change in this patch is the replacing
the big printk hexdump of RTAS events with a single line such as

kernel: RTAS: event: 1, Type: Dump Notification Event, Severity: 1

The full hexdump is always available in /var/log/platform (logged by the
rtas_errd daemon) or you can boot with the option rtasmsgs=[on/off] to
turn on or off full printk hexdumping of RTAS events.
