powerpc/64: Fix flush_(d|i)cache_range() called from modules
When the kernel is compiled to use 64bit ABIv2 the _GLOBAL() macro does
not include a global entry point. A function's global entry point is
used when the function is called from a different TOC context and in the
kernel this typically means a call from a module into the vmlinux (or
There are a few exported asm functions declared with _GLOBAL() and
calling them from a module will likely crash the kernel since any TOC
relative load will yield garbage.
flush_icache_range() and flush_dcache_range() are both exported to
modules, and use the TOC, so must use _GLOBAL_TOC().
