powerpc/pseries: Track previous CPPR values to correctly EOI interrupts
At the moment when we EOI an interrupt we set the CPPR back to 0xFF regardless of its previous value. This could lead to problems if we take an interrupt with a priority of 5, but before EOIing it we get an IPI which has a priority of 4. The problem is that at the moment when we EOI the IPI we will set the CPPR to 0xFF, but it should really be set back to 5 (the previous priority). To keep track of the previous CPPR values we create the xics_cppr structure that has an array for CPPR values and an index pointing to the current priority. This can easily grow if new priorities get added in the future. This will also be useful because the partition adjunct option of upcoming machines will update the H_XIRR hcall to accept the CPPR as a parameter.
