Subject[patch 27/30] powerpc: Fix incorrect setting of __HAVE_ARCH_PTE_SPECIAL

2.6.30-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Weirich, Bernhard <Bernhard.Weirich@riedel.net>
[I'm going to fix upstream differently, by having all CPU types
actually support _PAGE_SPECIAL, but I prefer the simple and obvious
fix for -stable. -- Ben]

The test that decides whether to define __HAVE_ARCH_PTE_SPECIAL on
powerpc is bogus and will end up always defining it, even when
_PAGE_SPECIAL is not supported (in which case it's 0) such as on
8xx or 40x processors.
