powerpc: scan device tree for gigantic pages

The 16G huge pages have to be reserved in the HMC prior to boot.  The
location of the pages are placed in the device tree.  This patch adds code
to scan the device tree during very early boot and save these page
locations until hugetlbfs is ready for them.
