powerpc: check_and_cede_processor() never cedes

Commit f948501b ("Make hard_irq_disable() actually hard-disable
interrupts") caused check_and_cede_processor to stop working.
->irq_happened will never be zero right after a hard_irq_disable
so the compiler removes the call to cede_processor completely.

The bug was introduced back in the lazy interrupt handling rework
of 3.4 but was hidden until recently because hard_irq_disable did

This issue will eventually appear in 3.4 stable since the
hard_irq_disable fix is marked stable, so mark this one for stable
