Subject[127/136] powerpc/8xx: Fix regression introduced by cache coherency rewrite
2.6.31-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Rex Feany <RFeany@mrv.com>

commit e0908085fc2391c85b85fb814ae1df377c8e0dcb upstream.

After upgrading to the latest kernel on my mpc875 userspace started
running incredibly slow (hours to get to a shell, even!).
I tracked it down to commit 8d30c14cab30d405a05f2aaceda1e9ad57800f36,
that patch removed a work-around for the 8xx. Adding it
back makes my problem go away.
