[POWERPC] Fix off-by-one error in setting decrementer on Book E/4xx (v2)
The decrementer in Book E and 4xx processors interrupts on the transition from 1 to 0, rather than on the 0 to -1 transition as on 64-bit server and 32-bit "classic" (6xx/7xx/7xxx) processors. At the moment we subtract 1 from the count of how many decrementer ticks are required before the next interrupt before putting it into the decrementer, which is correct for server/classic processors, but could possibly cause the interrupt to happen too early on Book E and 4xx if the timebase/decrementer frequency is low. This fixes the problem by making set_dec subtract 1 from the count for server and classic processors, instead of having the callers subtract 1. Since set_dec already had a bunch of ifdefs to handle different processor types, there is no net increase in ugliness. :) Note that calling set_dec(0) may not generate an interrupt on some processors. To make sure that decrementer_set_next_event always calls set_dec with an interval of at least 1 tick, we set min_delta_ns of the decrementer_clockevent to correspond to 2 ticks (2 rather than 1 to compensate for truncations in the conversions between ticks and ns). This also removes a redundant call to set the decrementer to 0x7fffffff - it was already set to that earlier in timer_interrupt. Signed-off-by: Paul Mackerras <paulus@samba.org>
