powerpc/powernv: Add OPAL takeover from PowerVM
On machines supporting the OPAL firmware version 1, the system is initially booted under pHyp. We then use a special hypercall to verify if OPAL is available and if it is, we then trigger a "takeover" which disables pHyp and loads the OPAL runtime firmware, giving control to the kernel in hypervisor mode. This patch add the necessary code to detect that the OPAL takeover capability is present when running under PowerVM (aka pHyp) and perform said takeover to get hypervisor control of the processor. To perform the takeover, we must first use RTAS (within Open Firmware runtime environment) to start all processors & threads, in order to give control to OPAL on all of them. We then call the takeover hypercall on everybody, OPAL will re-enter the kernel main entry point passing it a flat device-tree. Signed-off-by: Benjamin Herrenschmidt <benh@kernel.crashing.org>
