RISC-V Fixes for 4.15-rc4

This pull request contains three small fixes that I'm hoping to get into
4.15-rc4:

* A fix to a typo in sys_riscv_flush_icache. This only effects error
handling, but I think it's a small and obvious enough change that it's
sane outside the merge window.
* The addition of smp_mb__after_spinlock(), which was recently removed
due to an incorrect comment. This is largly a comment change (as
there's a big one now), and while it's necessary for complience with
the RISC-V memory model the lack of this fence shouldn't manifest as a
bug on current implementations. Nonetheless, it still seems saner to
have the fence in 4.15.
* The removal of some of the HVC_RISCV_SBI driver that snuck into the
arch port. This is compile-time dead code in 4.15 (as the driver
isn't in yet), and during the review process we found a better way to
implement early printk on RISC-V. While this change doesn't do
anything, it will make staging our HVC driver easier: without this
change the HVC driver we hope to upstream won't build on 4.15 (because
the 4.15 arch code would reference a function that no longer exists).

Additionally, I'm instituting a bit of a process change so I don't
submit things too quickly again:

* All the patches I submit during an RC will be from the week before, so
everyone has gotten a chance to see them and they've made it through
our autobuilders and integration trees.
* I'll cherry-pick (single patches) or merge (if it's a patch set) on
top of the new RC on Monday morning.
* I'll sign the tag on Monday morning, to let the autobuilders pick up
exactly what I'm submitting.
* Assuming nothing goes wrong, I'll mail the pull request out on
Wednesday. If something goes wrong, I'll wait at least a day after
re-spinning the tag to let the autobuilders pick things up.

Hopefully this will avoid any headaches in the future, barring any
emergency fixes.

I don't think this is the last patch set we'll want for 4.15: I think
I'll want to remove some of the first-level irqchip driver that snuck in
as well, which will look a lot like the HVC patch here. This is pending
some asm-generic cleanup I'm doing that I haven't quite gotten clean
enough to send out yet, though, but hopefully it'll be ready by next
week (and still OK for that late).
