Subject: [PATCH 2/3] powerpc: correctly disable latent entropy GCC plugin on prom_init.o

Commit 38addce8b600 ("gcc-plugins: Add latent_entropy plugin") excludes
certain powerpc early boot code from the latent entropy plugin by adding
appropriate CFLAGS. It looks like this was supposed to cover prom_init.o,
but ended up saying init.o (which doesn't exist) instead. Fix the typo.

Fixes: 38addce8b600 ("gcc-plugins: Add latent_entropy plugin")

I think that we potentially could get rid of some of these disables, but
it's safer to leave it for now.
