powerpc/64: Don't trace code that runs with the soft irq mask unreconciled
"Reconciling" in terms of interrupt handling, is to bring the soft irq mask state in to synch with the hardware, after an interrupt causes MSR[EE] to be cleared (while the soft mask may be enabled, and hard irqs not marked disabled). General kernel code should not be called while unreconciled, because local_irq_disable, etc. manipulations can cause surprising irq traces, and it's fragile because the soft irq code does not really expect to be called in this situation. When exiting from an interrupt, MSR[EE] is cleared to prevent races, but soft irq state is enabled for the returned-to context, so this is now an unreconciled state. restore_math is called in this state, and that can be ftraced, and the ftrace subsystem disables local irqs. Mark restore_math and its callees as notrace. Restore a sanity check in the soft irq code that had to be disabled for this case, by commit 4da1f79227ad4 ("powerpc/64: Disable irq restore warning for now").
