Patches required to support RAS on 14.04.3 kernel

commit 3f77df7f81526c932ef681eda56eeaa75d0617da
Author: Vasant Hegde <hegdevasant@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

    powerpc/powernv: Check image loaded or not before calling flash
    Present code checks for update_flash_data in opal_flash_term_callback().
    update_flash_data has been statically initialized to zero, and that
    is the value of FLASH_IMG_READY. Also code update initialization happens
    during subsys init.
    So if reboot is issued before the subsys init stage then we endup displaying
    "Flashing new firmware" message.. which may confuse end user.
    This patch fixes above described issue by initializes update_flash status
    to invalid state.
