Furthermore this is also a fixup to some verification tests at the same time. [Test Case] * 1. deploy xenial + HWE kernel on a ppc64el box 2. sudo apt-get install qemu-kvm -y 3. git clone --depth=1 https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/virt/kvm/kvm-unit-tests.git 4. cd kvm-unit-tests 5. ./configure --endian=little; make 6. sudo ppc64_cpu --smt=off 7. sudo ./run_tests.sh -v [Regression Potential] * The changes are ppc only and provided by IBM so the potential risk is retained to the owner of the Area. Further the change is very small, so it has a very low amount of being misunderstood. [Other Info] * n/a --- Similar to bug 1723904, bug 1712803.
