Subject[PATCH v3 1/2] powerpc/boot: add {get,put}_unaligned_be32 to xz_config.h
The next commit will make the way of passing CONFIG options more robust.
Unfortunately, it would uncover another hidden issue; without this
commit, skiroot_defconfig would be broken like this:

| WRAP arch/powerpc/boot/zImage.pseries
| arch/powerpc/boot/wrapper.a(decompress.o): In function `bcj_powerpc.isra.10':
| decompress.c:(.text+0x720): undefined reference to `get_unaligned_be32'
| decompress.c:(.text+0x7a8): undefined reference to `put_unaligned_be32'
| make[1]: *** [arch/powerpc/boot/Makefile;383: arch/powerpc/boot/zImage.pseries] Error 1
| make: *** [arch/powerpc/Makefile;295: zImage] Error 2

skiroot_defconfig is the only defconfig that enables CONFIG_KERNEL_XZ
for ppc, which has never been correctly built before.

I figured out the root cause in lib/decompress_unxz.c:

| #ifdef CONFIG_PPC
| # define XZ_DEC_POWERPC
| #endif

CONFIG_PPC is undefined here in the ppc bootwrapper because autoconf.h
is not included except by arch/powerpc/boot/serial.c

XZ_DEC_POWERPC is not defined, therefore, bcj_powerpc() is not compiled
for the bootwrapper.

With the next commit passing CONFIG_PPC correctly, we would realize that
{get,put}_unaligned_be32 was missing.

Unlike the other decompressors, the ppc bootwrapper duplicates all the
necessary helpers in arch/powerpc/boot/.

The other architectures define __KERNEL__ and pull in helpers for
building the decompressors.

If ppc bootwrapper had defined __KERNEL__, lib/xz/xz_private.h would
have included <asm/unaligned.h>:

| #ifdef __KERNEL__
| # include <linux/xz.h>
| # include <linux/kernel.h>
| # include <asm/unaligned.h>

However, doing so would cause tons of definition conflicts since the
bootwrapper has duplicated everything.

I just added copies of {get,put}_unaligned_be32, following the
bootwrapper coding convention.
