CFAR is the Come From Register. It saves the location of the last
branch and is hence overwritten by any branch.

Do we process it just like others done (e.g. 0x300, 0xe00, 0xe20 ...) ?
. = 0x900
.globl decrementer_pSeries
b decrementer_pSeries_0


Oh, it seems EXCEPTION_PROLOG_1 will save the regesters which related
with CFAR, so I think need move EXCEPTION_PROLOG_1 to near 0x900.
I will try your diff V2, to see if the machine can boot up
OK, thanks. (hope it can work)
It seems that the machine can be bootup in powernv mode, but I'm not sure if my machine call that module.

At lease my machine can boot up
