Subject: [PATCH 4.9 127/130] selftest/powerpc: Wrong PMC initialized in pmc56_overflow test

4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Madhavan Srinivasan <maddy@...ux.vnet.ibm.com>

commit df21d2fa733035e4d414379960f94b2516b41296 upstream.

Test uses PMC2 to count the event. But PMC1 is being initialized.
Patch to fix it.
