ARM: 7566/1: vfp: fix save and restore when running on pre-VFPv3 and CONFIG_VFPv3 set

commit 39141ddfb63a664f26d3f42f64ee386e879b492c upstream.

After commit 846a136881b8f73c1f74250bf6acfaa309cab1f2 ("ARM: vfp: fix
saving d16-d31 vfp registers on v6+ kernels"), the OMAP 2430SDP board
started crashing during boot with omap2plus_defconfig:

[    3.875122] mmcblk0: mmc0:e624 SD04G 3.69 GiB
[    3.915954]  mmcblk0: p1
[    4.086639] Internal error: Oops - undefined instruction: 0 [#1] SMP ARM
[    4.093719] Modules linked in:
[    4.096954] CPU: 0    Not tainted  (3.6.0-02232-g759e00b #570)
[    4.103149] PC is at vfp_reload_hw+0x1c/0x44
[    4.107666] LR is at __und_usr_fault_32+0x0/0x8

It turns out that the context save/restore fix unmasked a latent bug
in commit 5aaf254409f8d58229107b59507a8235b715a960 ("ARM: 6203/1: Make
VFPv3 usable on ARMv6").  When CONFIG_VFPv3 is set, but the kernel is
booted on a pre-VFPv3 core, the code attempts to save and restore the
d16-d31 VFP registers.  These are only present on non-D16 VFPv3+, so
this results in an undefined instruction exception.  The code didn't
crash before commit 846a136 because the save and restore code was
only touching d0-d15, present on all VFP.

Fix by implementing a request from Russell King to add a new HWCAP
flag that affirmatively indicates the presence of the d16-d31
registers:

   http://marc.info/?l=linux-arm-kernel&m=135013547905283&w=2

and some feedback from Måns to clarify the name of the HWCAP flag.
