Subject: [PATCH 5/8] powerpc/hv-24x7: Update post_mobility_fixup() to handle migration

Function 'read_sys_info_pseries()' is added to get system parameter
values like number of sockets and chips per socket.
and it gets these details via rtas_call with token
"PROCESSOR_MODULE_INFO".

Incase lpar migrate from one system to another, system
parameter details like chips per sockets or number of sockets might
change. So, it needs to be re-initialized otherwise, these values
corresponds to previous system values.
This patch adds a call to 'read_sys_info_pseries()' from
'post-mobility_fixup()' to re-init the physsockets and physchips values.
