Early secure guest boot hits the below crash while booting with
vcpus numbers aligned with page boundary for PAGE size of 64k
and LPPACA size of 1k i.e 64, 128 etc, due to the BUG_ON assert
for shared_lppaca_total_size equal to shared_lppaca_size,

 [    0.000000] Partition configured for 64 cpus.
 [    0.000000] CPU maps initialized for 1 thread per core
 [    0.000000] ------------[ cut here ]------------
 [    0.000000] kernel BUG at arch/powerpc/kernel/paca.c:89!
 [    0.000000] Oops: Exception in kernel mode, sig: 5 [#1]
 [    0.000000] LE PAGE_SIZE=64K MMU=Radix SMP NR_CPUS=2048 NUMA pSeries

which is not necessary, let's remove it.
