Thanks for your work on this. For this series:

The latter is a limitation of the eBPF instruction set itself today, 
rather than a powerpc-specific limitation.

Indeed. In my tests, before this series, with CONFIG_BPF_JIT_ALWAYS_ON=y:
test_bpf: Summary: 894 PASSED, 132 FAILED, [882/882 JIT'ed]
test_progs --name=atomic: Summary: 0/0 PASSED, 0 SKIPPED, 2 FAILED
test_verifier 0 100: Summary: 46 PASSED, 151 SKIPPED, 0 FAILED

With your patches:
test_bpf: Summary: 1026 PASSED, 0 FAILED, [1014/1014 JIT'ed]
test_progs --name=atomic: Summary: 2/7 PASSED, 0 SKIPPED, 0 FAILED
test_verifier 0 100: Summary: 101 PASSED, 96 SKIPPED, 0 FAILED

It is nice to see all the test_bpf tests pass again on ppc64le!
