    Linus Torvalds authored
    Pull powerpc update from Benjamin Herrenschmidt:
     "The main highlights this time around are:
       - A pile of addition POWER8 bits and nits, such as updated
         performance counter support (Michael Ellerman), new branch history
         buffer support (Anshuman Khandual), base support for the new PCI
         host bridge when not using the hypervisor (Gavin Shan) and other
         random related bits and fixes from various contributors.
       - Some rework of our page table format by Aneesh Kumar which fixes a
         thing or two and paves the way for THP support.  THP itself will
         not make it this time around however.
       - More Freescale updates, including Altivec support on the new e6500
         cores, new PCI controller support, and a pile of new boards support
         and updates.
       - The usual batch of trivial cleanups & fixes"
