Anton Blanchard - March 12, 2013, 11:51 a.m.
Commit 5ac47f7a6efb (powerpc: Relocate prom_init.c on 64bit) made
prom_init.c position independent by manually relocating its entries
in the TOC.

We get the address of the TOC entries with the __prom_init_toc_start
linker symbol. If __prom_init_toc_start ends up as an entry in the
TOC then we need to add an offset to get the current address. This is
the case for older toolchains.

On the other hand, if we have a newer toolchain that supports
-mcmodel=medium then __prom_init_toc_start will be created by a
relative offset from r2 (the TOC pointer). Since r2 has already been
relocated, nothing more needs to be done.  Adding an offset in this
case is wrong and Aaro Koskinen and Alexander Graf have noticed noticed
G5 and OpenBIOS breakage.

Alan Modra suggested we just use r2 to get at the TOC which is simpler
and works with both old and new toolchains.

Thanks Aaro for reporting this, and Alexander for an initial
fix. This tested ok for me with both a new and an old toolchain,
but would appreciate if you could double check it fixes your issues
too.

This seems to fix the issue also for me, so:

This fixes my G5 again as well.

Please make sure this patch goes into 3.9.
