I refreshed the tested changes on top of the security update and pushed
it for SRU review into Xenial.

  spapr_hcall from ubuntu_kvm_unit_test failed on ppc64el with Z-hwe

Bug description:

   * Xenial with HWE kernel (matching new relesaes) and qemu without cloud
     archive (not matching new releases) could trigger hypercalls that are 
     not supported in xenials-qemu.

   * There is no "real" case other than kvm tests yet to trigger it yet, but 
     it is an easy and well contained fix, so we might fix proactively.

  [Test Case]

    1. deploy xenial + HWE kernel on a ppc64el box
    2. sudo apt-get install qemu-kvm -y
    3. git clone --depth=1 
    4. cd kvm-unit-tests
    5. ./configure --endian=little; make
    6. sudo ppc64_cpu --smt=off
    7. sudo ./run_tests -v

  [Regression Potential]

   * The changes are all upstream since a long time now (lowering the risk 
     of silly mistakes)
   * The changes are isolated to ppc, so in the worst case only this arch 
     should regress.
   * We implement new hcalls, so if anything there might be a regression if 
     software expected them to fail, but now breaks by them working (don't 
     think so given the nature of these hcalls).

  [Other Info]
   * n/a


  kernel: 4.10.0-33.37~16.04.1

  I think this issue was introduced by the old qemu version (similar
  issue was spotted on Xenial before), will need to investigate this
