powerpc/vphn: parsing code rewrite
The current VPHN parsing logic has some flaws that this patch aims to fix: 1) when the value 0xffff is read, the value 0xffffffff gets added to the the output list and its element count isn't incremented. This is wrong. According to PAPR+ the domain identifiers are packed into a sequence terminated by the "reserved value of all ones". This means that 0xffff is a stream terminator. 2) the combination of byteswaps and casts make the code hardly readable. Let's parse the stream one 16-bit field at a time instead. 3) it is assumed that the hypercall returns 12 32-bit values packed into 6 64-bit registers. According to PAPR+, the domain identifiers may be streamed as 16-bit values. Let's increase the number of expected numbers to 24.
