powerpc: Define differences between doorbells on book3e and book3s
There are a few key differences between doorbells on server compared with embedded that we care about on Linux, namely: - We have a new msgsndp instruction for directed privileged doorbells. msgsnd is used for directed hypervisor doorbells. - The tag we use in the instruction is the Thread Identification Register of the recipient thread (since server doorbells can only occur between threads within a single core), and is only 7 bits wide. - A new message type is introduced for server doorbells (none of the existing book3e message types are currently supported on book3s).
