powerpc: Make MPIC honor the "pic-no-reset" device tree property
This property, defined in the Open PIC binding, tells the kernel not to use the reset bit in the global configuration register. Additionally, its presence mandates that only sources which are actually used (i.e. appear in the device tree) should have their VECPRI bits initialized. Although, "pic-no-reset" can be used for the same use cases that "protected-sources" is covering, the "protected-sources" implementation was left completely intact. This is a more pragmatic approach as there are already several existing systems which use protected sources. If "pic-no-reset" *and* "protected-sources" are both used, however, then "pic-no-reset" takes precedence in terms of the init behavior and the sanity checks done by protected sources will still take place.
