powerpc/sysfs: Disable writing to PURR in guest mode
commit d1211af3049f4c9c1d8d4eb8f8098cc4f4f0d0c7 upstream. arch/powerpc/kernel/sysfs.c exports PURR with write permission. This may be valid for kernel in phyp mode. But writing to the file in guest mode causes crash due to a priviledge violation Signed-off-by: Madhavan Srinivasan <maddy@linux.vnet.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Benjamin Herrenschmidt <benh@kernel.crashing.org> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>
