Bug Description

[SRU Justification]

ppc64le system OOPSes shortly after boot when KVM guests are started.

Cherry-pick patch e47057151422a67ce08747176fa21cb3b526a2c9

Tested at IBM - boot a machine with a KVM guest configured to start at boot. Without this patch, observe OOPS, with this patch, observe no OOPS.

[Regression Potential]
Patch is contained in arch/powerpc; so regression potential limited to that arch. Patch accepted to kernel stable trees, suggesting others also believe it to be of low risk.

Was fixed in upstream stable 4.4.80 as "KVM: PPC: Book3S HV: Reload HTM registers explicitly". I will mark this bug as duplicate of the stable tracking bug for reference.
