[PATCH] linking zImage with biarch ld

I noticed that with the vDSO patch in 2.6.11-bk, it's almost possible to build
the kernel with the fedora biarch toolchain. However, I still get warnings
from ld about zImage being the wrong architecture, unless I change the script
as shown in this patch.

I'm not sure if this breaks setups with old binutils that might not understand
powerpc:common, otherwise please apply.
