ARM: SoC fixes for 3.13-rc

Mostly bugfixes and a few small code removals. Worth pointing out is:

– A handful of more fixes to get DT enablement working properly on OMAP,
finding new breakage of things that don’t work quite right yet without
the traditional board files. I expect a bit more of this to come in this
release as people test on their hardware.
– Implementation of power_down_finish() on vexpress, to make kexec work and
to stop the MCPM core to produce a warning (the warning was new to 3.13-rc1).
– A handful of minor fixes for various platforms.

-Benjamin Herrenscmidt has powerpc bug fixes:

Here are a few powerpc bug fixes post -rc1. The main thing that caused
problem was that CONFIG_CPU_LITTLE_ENDIAN got turned on with allyesconfig
and such, which is not a very good idea especially since it requires a
newer toolchain than what most people have. So we turned it into a
choice instead that defaults to big endian.
