[Xenial][Bionic][SRU][PATCH 0/1] selftests/ftrace: Add ppc support for kprobe args tests

== Justification ==
When running the ftrace in ubunut_kernel_selftests, the "Kprobe event
argument syntax" will fail on Bionic PowerPC.
This is because PowerPC was not supported by this test.
== Fix ==
9855c462 (selftests/ftrace: Add ppc support for kprobe args tests)
This patch can be cherry-picked for Bionic and Xenial.
Although we don't run this ftrace test in Xenial, it will still be a
plus to fix this.
It's already been applied in C/D.
== Test ==
Patch tested with Bionic P8. Test passed as expected:
 Kprobe event argument syntax [PASS]
== Regression potential ==
This patch is just for the kernel testing tool.
