Actually, I was thinking that having an extra nop there on the !SMP &&
!(745x && MPC107) case wouldn't hurt much / at all, and having this
feature bit be done unconditionally.  But in cpu_setup_6xx.S we would
compare the host bridge vendor / device ID to that of an mpc107.  Or am
I not thinking right, and doing that comparison at that time would be a
bad idea?  If so, I can live with it being an unconditional option, iff
it's only required when MPC10X_STORE_GATHERING is enabled.
