Subject[RFC PATCH 1/1] powerpc/pseries/svm: Unshare all pages before kexecing a new kernel
powerpc/pseries/svm: Unshare all pages before kexecing a new kernel.

A new kernel deserves a clean slate. Any pages shared with the
hypervisor is unshared before invoking the new kernel. However there are
exceptions. If the new kernel is invoked to dump the current kernel, or
if there is a explicit request to preserve the state of the current
kernel, unsharing of pages is skipped.

NOTE: Reserve atleast 256M for crashkernel. Otherwise SWIOTLB
allocation fails and crash kernel fails to boot.
