[PATCH 4.4 052/266] powerpc/64s: Add new security feature flags for count cache flush




From: Michael Ellerman <mpe@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit dc8c6cce9a26a51fc19961accb978217a3ba8c75 upstream.

Add security feature flags to indicate the need for software to flush
the count cache on context switch, and for the presence of a hardware
assisted count cache flush.
