Merge branch 'next' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/benh/powerpc
Pull powerpc updates from Benjamin Herrenschmidt: "So from the depth of frozen Minnesota, here's the powerpc pull request for 3.9. It has a few interesting highlights, in addition to the usual bunch of bug fixes, minor updates, embedded device tree updates and new boards: - Hand tuned asm implementation of SHA1 (by Paulus & Michael Ellerman) - Support for Doorbell interrupts on Power8 (kind of fast thread-thread IPIs) by Ian Munsie - Long overdue cleanup of the way we handle relocation of our open firmware trampoline (prom_init.c) on 64-bit by Anton Blanchard - Support for saving/restoring & context switching the PPR (Processor Priority Register) on server processors that support it. This allows the kernel to preserve thread priorities established by userspace. By Haren Myneni. - DAWR (new watchpoint facility) support on Power8 by Michael Neuling - Ability to change the DSCR (Data Stream Control Register) which controls cache prefetching on a running process via ptrace by Alexey Kardashevskiy - Support for context switching the TAR register on Power8 (new branch target register meant to be used by some new specific userspace perf event interrupt facility which is yet to be enabled) by Ian Munsie. - Improve preservation of the CFAR register (which captures the origin of a branch) on various exception conditions by Paulus. - Move the Bestcomm DMA driver from arch powerpc to drivers/dma where it belongs by Philippe De Muyter - Support for Transactional Memory on Power8 by Michael Neuling (based on original work by Matt Evans). For those curious about the feature, the patch contains a pretty good description."
