The first 9 patches are a bunch of independent small cleanups
and improvements I've collected. The next 4 are improvements to
POWER9 idle state entry and exit. They significantly change how
we enter idle, now in virtual mode and without ptesync. EC=0 idle
is significantly simplified from there, and does not save anything.

This runs fine on a DD1 test machine, but the hardware has some
problem with performance all over the place, so I'm not able to get
anything meaningful there yet.


Nicholas Piggin (13):
  powerpc/64s: masked interrupt avoid branch
  powerpc/64s: masked interrupt avoid instruction
  powerpc/64s: masked interrupt returns to kernel so avoid r13 restore
  powerpc/64: cleanup __check_irq_replay
  powerpc/64s: irq replay merge HV and non-HV paths for doorbell replay
  powerpc/64s: irq replay external use the HV handler in HV mode on
  powerpc/64: remove redundant instruction in interrupt replay
  powerpc/64s: irq replay remove spurious irq reason
  powerpc/64: runlatch CTRL[RUN] set optimisation
  powerpc/64s: idle simplify KVM idle on POWER9
  powerpc/64s: idle POWER9 can execute stop without ptesync
  powerpc/64s: idle POWER9 can execute stop in virtual mode
  powerpc/64s: idle ESL=0 stop can avoid all save/restore overhead
