Subject[RFC PATCH v2 10/18] livepatch/powerpc: add TIF_PATCH_PENDING thread flag
Date
Add the TIF_PATCH_PENDING thread flag to enable the new livepatch
per-task consistency model for powerpc. The bit getting set indicates
the thread has a pending patch which needs to be applied when the thread
exits the kernel.

The bit is included in the _TIF_USER_WORK_MASK macro so that
do_notify_resume() and klp_patch_task() get called when the bit is set.
