[PATCH] powerpc: fix 32-bit KVM-PR lockup and panic with MacOS guest




Commit 8792468da5e1 "powerpc: Add the ability to save FPU without giving it up"
unexpectedly removed the MSR_FE0 and MSR_FE1 bits from the bitmask used to
update the MSR of the previous thread in __giveup_fpu() causing a KVM-PR MacOS
guest to lockup and panic the kernel.

Reinstate these bits to the MSR bitmask to enable MacOS guests to run under
32-bit KVM-PR once again without issue.
