Subject[PATCH] powerpc/irq: don't use current_stack_pointer() in do_IRQ()
Before commit 7306e83ccf5c ("powerpc: Don't use CURRENT_THREAD_INFO to
find the stack"), the current stack base address was obtained by
calling current_thread_info(). That inline function was simply masking
out the value of r1.

In that commit, it was changed to using current_stack_pointer(), which
is an heavier function as it is an outline assembly function which
cannot be inlined and which reads the content of the stack at 0(r1)

Revert to just getting r1 and masking out its value to obtain the base
address of the stack pointer as before.
