Hmm.  So with binutils 2.14, we need to do -many,-mppc as -many will
zero out all previous flags.  On binutils 2.15, -mppc always resets
the cpu_flags, thus clearing out -many.  -mppc64bridge, -me500 and
-m405/etc all do the same.  So far we end up being lucky, imho, that
don't trip over this on !CONFIG_6xx.  So while I'm not exactly happy
we have to do this, the following is the least ugly fix for this:
