  powerpc: backport AST graphic driver updates for OpenPower

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in linux source package in Utopic:

Bug description:
  The OpenPower machines such as the Tyan dev board use the ASpeed BMC which has a built
  in graphic controller. The driver for this doesn't work properly on PowerPC at the moment,
  this series of patches is a backport from upstream to fix that. It would be nice to have this
  in utopic kernel.

  Each patch in this archive is a cherry-pick and identifies the
  original upstream commit.

  All except patch 1 cherry-pick cleanly. Patch 1 needed some hand applying due to some
  unrelated changes that went upstream since 3.16 but the fixup is trivial.
