[PATCH v2] powerpc: re-enable dynticks

implement arch_irq_work_has_interrupt() for powerpc

(resending because I messed up the e-mail addresses)

Commit 9b01f5bf3 introduced a dependency on "IRQ work self-IPIs" for full dynamic ticks to be enabled, by expecting architectures to implement a suitable arch_irq_work_has_interrupt() routine.

Several arches have implemented this routine, including x86 (3010279f) and arm (09f6edd4), but powerpc was omitted.

This patch implements this routine for powerpc.

The symptom, at boot (on powerpc arch systems) with "nohz_full=<CPU list>" is displayed:
NO_HZ: Can't run full dynticks because arch doesn't support irq work self-IPIs

after this patch:
NO_HZ: Full dynticks CPUs: <CPU list>.

Tested against 3.19.

v2: changed "return 1" to "return true", per Michael Ellerman
