commit: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=c357dd607b403c2b016e51d8fc4609f854e41fee
branch: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=refs/heads/2017.02.x

In some xtensa configurations there may be system/user registers in
xtensa-modules with negative index. ISA initialization for such config
may clobber heap and result in program termination.
Don't update lookup table entries for register with negative indices.
