Hi Linus !

Here are some powerpc fixes for you.

This includes small series from Michael Neuling to fix a couple of nasty
remaining problems with the new Power8 support, also targeted at stable
3.10, without which some new userspace accessible registers aren't
properly context switched, and in some case, can be clobbered by the
user of transactional memory.

Along with that, a few slightly more minor things, such as a missing
Kconfig option to enable handling of denorm exceptions when not running
under a hypervisor (or userspace will randomly crash when hitting
denorms with the vector unit), some nasty bugs in the new pstore oops
code, and other simple bug fixes worth having in now.

Note: I picked up the two powerpc KVM fixes as Alex Graf asked me to
handle KVM bits while he is on vacation. However I'll let him decide
whether they should go to -stable or not when he is back.
