new binutils breaks "tlbie" instruction in kernel?

The "tlbie" instruction has a bit which may be set to indicate regular
or large page size. This used to be set via an optional second parameter.
Apparently some time between binutils versions 188.8.131.52.2 and
184.108.40.206.2 a change went in to make this second parameter mandatory,
which breaks the kernel ppc code.
What is the recommended way to fix this? Do all binutils versions
understand the second parameter, or will "sufficiently old" versions
choke on it?
