[PATCH v1 05/16] powerpc/40x: Don't use SPRN_SPRG_SCRATCH2 in EXCEPTION_PROLOG




Unlike said in the comment, r1 is not reused by the critical
exception handler, as it uses a dedicated critirq_ctx stack.
Decrementing r1 early is then unneeded.

Should the above be valid, the code is crap buggy anyway as
r1 gets some intermediate values that would jeopardise the
whole process (for instance after mfspr   r1,SPRN_SPRG_THREAD)

Using SPRN_SPRG_SCRATCH2 to save r1 is then not needed, r11 can be
used instead. This avoids one mtspr and one mfspr and makes the
prolog closer to what's done on 6xx and 8xx.
