I also prefer the former, in general -- it makes it easier for people to
port their platform from ppc to powerpc if we don't let the two diverge
too much.

There's also a third option, which _encourages_ people to port their
platform without necessarily making it easier: just let arch/ppc break.
I'm not sure I'd necessarily advocate that one _yet_ but maybe in the
not-so-distant future.
