I don't feel comfortable accepting this piece as is -- can you
restrict it to just PPC?:

Actually, for that matter, why is it even there? You're already
setting ELF_NOTES in ppc_process_elf_notes() the same way
that the X86 does it in x86_process_elf_notes().

ppc_process_elf_notes is called only for diskdump, not for netdump.
And all the process_elf_notes(), update the diskdump_data->nt_prstatus_percpu[],
which(dd) is not available in the arch specific files.

For netdump we don't end up calling the ppc_process_elf_notes(), which is true
for any other archs. I am setting this for the netdump case, so that we can reuse
the same function for stack frame from the pt_regs.
