[PATCH] powerpc/fsl: Add support for pci(e) machine check exception on E500MC / E5500

From: Guenter Roeck
Date: Mon Sep 29 2014 - 12:48:47 EST

From: Jojy G Varghese <jojyv@xxxxxxxxxxx>

For E500MC and E5500, a machine check exception in pci(e) memory space
crashes the kernel.

Testing shows that the MCAR(U) register is zero on a MC exception for the
E5500 core. At the same time, DEAR register has been found to have the
address of the faulty load address during an MC exception for this core.

This fix changes the current behavior to fixup the result register
and instruction pointers in the case of a load operation on a faulty
PCI address.

The changes are:
- Added the hook to pci machine check handing to the e500mc machine check
exception handler.
- For the E5500 core, load faulting address from SPRN_DEAR register.
As mentioned above, this is necessary because the E5500 core does not
report the fault address in the MCAR register.
