Since last time:

- Split out KVM parts. Technically they don't actually have
  dependencies with the Linux patches I suppose, so they could be
  merged via different trees. Logically I think they are better to
  stay together.

- Fix and simplify the KVM secondary thread management patch, thanks

- Fixed a bug in the ESL=0 avoid overhead patch.

- Retested on P8 and P9 with qemu.

- Mambo simulator still doesn't handle EC=0 wakeups properly, but I
  have reported that, and managed to write a patch here to fix the
  simulator bug and test there too.

Nicholas Piggin (14):
  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
  KVM: PPC: Book3S HV: POWER9 does not require secondary thread
  powerpc/64s: idle POWER9 can execute stop without a sync sequence
  KVM: PPC: Book3S HV: POWER9 can execute stop without a sync sequence
  powerpc/64s: idle POWER9 can execute stop in virtual mode
  powerpc/64s: idle ESL=0 stop can avoid MSR and save/restore overhead
