Subject: [PATCH 3.2 153/200] powerpc/le: Ensure that the 'stop-self' RTAS
 token is handled correctly

3.2.56-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Tony Breeds <tony@...eyournoodle.com>

commit 41dd03a94c7d408d2ef32530545097f7d1befe5c upstream.

Currently we're storing a host endian RTAS token in
rtas_stop_self_args.token.  We then pass that directly to rtas.  This is
fine on big endian however on little endian the token is not what we
expect.

This will typically result in hitting:
	panic("Alas, I survived.\n");

To fix this we always use the stop-self token in host order and always
convert it to be32 before passing this to rtas.
