Subject: [git pull] Please pull powerpc.git merge branch

Hi Linus !

Here are a few more powerpc fixes for 3.16

There's a small series of 3 patches that fix saving/restoring MMUCR2
when using KVM without which perf goes completely bonkers in the host
system. Another perf fix from Anton that's been rotting away in patchwork
due to my poor eyesight, a couple of compile fixes, a little addition
to the WSP removal by Michael (removing a bit more dead stuff) and
a fix for an embarassing regression with our soft irq masking.


The following changes since commit 6663a4fa6711050036562ddfd2086edf735fae21:

  powerpc: Don't skip ePAPR spin-table CPUs (2014-06-25 13:10:49 +1000)
