[PATCH 4.4 019/266] powerpc/rfi-flush: Always enable fallback flush on pseries




From: Michael Ellerman <mpe@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 84749a58b6e382f109abf1e734bc4dd43c2c25bb upstream.

This ensures the fallback flush area is always allocated on pseries,
so in case a LPAR is migrated from a patched to an unpatched system,
it is possible to enable the fallback flush in the target system.
