KVM: PPC: Book3S HV: Fix handling of secondary HPTEG in HPT resizing code
This fixes the computation of the HPTE index to use when the HPT resizing code encounters a bolted HPTE which is stored in its secondary HPTE group. The code inverts the HPTE group number, which is correct, but doesn't then mask it with new_hash_mask. As a result, new_pteg will be effectively negative, resulting in new_hptep pointing before the new HPT, which will corrupt memory. In addition, this removes two BUG_ON statements. The condition that the BUG_ONs were testing -- that we have computed the hash value incorrectly -- has never been observed in testing, and if it did occur, would only affect the guest, not the host. Given that BUG_ON should only be used in conditions where the kernel (i.e. the host kernel, in this case) can't possibly continue execution, it is not appropriate here.
