This is a couple of important fixes broken out of the series
"first step of standardising OPAL_BUSY handling", that prevents
the kernel from locking up if the NVRAM or RTC hardware does not

Another one, the console driver, has a similar problem that has
also been hit in testing, but that requires larger fixes to the
opal console and hvc tty driver that won't make it for 4.17.
