I updated the change log slightly:
powerpc/vmlinux.lds: Drop binutils < 2.18 workarounds
Segher added some workarounds for binutils < 2.18 and GCC < 4.2. We
now set GCC 4.6 and binutils 2.20 as the minimum, so the workarounds
can be dropped.
This is mostly a revert of c69cccc95fe4 ("powerpc: Fix build bug with
binutils < 2.18 and GCC < 4.2").
