Subject: [PATCH] PowerPC: honor O_NONBLOCK flag for rtas error_log

rtas_log_read() currently doesn't count O_NONBLOCK flag. This sample
code will block on read:

  fd = open ("/proc/ppc64/rtas/error_log", O_RDONLY | O_NONBLOCK);
  while (1) {
    err =read (fd, buf, 4096);
    printf("err = %d, errno = %d (%s)\n", err, errno, strerror(errno));
    sleep(1);
  }

With patched kernel it produces such (correct) output:

err = 2052, errno = 0 (Success)
err = -1, errno = 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable)
err = -1, errno = 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable)
err = -1, errno = 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable)
err = -1, errno = 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable)
