powerpc/64: Fix HMI exception on LE with CONFIG_RELOCATABLE=y
Prior to commit 2337d207288f ("powerpc/64: CONFIG_RELOCATABLE support for hmi interrupts"), the branch from hmi_exception_early() to hmi_exception_realmode() was just a bl hmi_exception_realmode, which the linker would turn into a bl to the local entry point of hmi_exception_realmode. This was broken when CONFIG_RELOCATABLE=y because hmi_exception_realmode() is not in the low part of the kernel text that is copied down to 0x0. But in fixing that, we added a new bug on little endian kernels. Because the branch is now a bctrl when CONFIG_RELOCATABLE=y, we branch to the global entry point of hmi_exception_realmode(). The global entry point must be called with r12 containing the address of hmi_exception_realmode(), because it uses that value to calculate the TOC value (r2). This may manifest as a checkstop, because we take a junk value from r12 which came from HSRR1, add a small constant to it and then use that as the TOC pointer. The HSRR1 value will have 0x9 as the top nibble, which puts it above RAM and somewhere in MMIO space. Fix it by changing the BRANCH_LINK_TO_FAR() macro to always use r12 to load the label we're branching to. This means r12 will be setup correctly on LE, fixing this bug, and r12 is also volatile across function calls on BE so it's a good choice anyway.
