powerpc: prep stack walkers for THREAD_INFO_IN_TASK
[text copied from commit 9bbd4c56b0b6 ("arm64: prep stack walkers for THREAD_INFO_IN_TASK")] When CONFIG_THREAD_INFO_IN_TASK is selected, task stacks may be freed before a task is destroyed. To account for this, the stacks are refcounted, and when manipulating the stack of another task, it is necessary to get/put the stack to ensure it isn't freed and/or re-used while we do so. This patch reworks the powerpc stack walking code to account for this. When CONFIG_THREAD_INFO_IN_TASK is not selected these perform no refcounting, and this should only be a structural change that does not affect behaviour.
