Subject[PATCH 3.16 016/178] powerpc/boot: Fix zImage TOC alignment
3.16.46-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Michael Ellerman <mpe@ellerman.id.au>

commit 97ee351b50a49717543533cfb85b4bf9d88c9680 upstream.

Recent toolchains force the TOC to be 256 byte aligned. We need to
enforce this alignment in the zImage linker script, otherwise pointers
to our TOC variables (__toc_start) could be incorrect. If the actual
start of the TOC and __toc_start don't have the same value we crash
early in the zImage wrapper.
