Subject[PATCH] powerpc: fix personality handling in ppc64_personality()
Directly comparing current->personality against PER_LINUX32 doesn't work 
in cases when any of the personality flags stored in the top three bytes
are used.

Directly forcefully setting personality to PER_LINUX32 or PER_LINUX
discards any flags stored in the top three bytes

Use personality() macro to compare only PER_MASK bytes and make sure that
we are setting only the bits that should be set, instead of
overwriting the whole value.

Found accidentally. Untested, I don't have the hardware.
