In recent Solaris 11 Update 1 builds, the Sun assembler tags AVX2 object
files with a hardware capability that isn't cleared by the current
gcc/testsuite/gcc.target/i386/clearcap.map file.  There are some new
capabilities in <sys/auxv_386.h> in AT_SUN_CAP_HW2, but unfortunately
the old linker map syntax has no support for setting/clearing hwcap_2,
and won't ever get it.

To deal with this situation, I've introduced a new mapfile using the v2
syntax which does support clearing hwcap_2, but now I need to determine
if the linker supports that syntax before using it.  Solaris 11 ld has
the necessary support, and it was backported to Solaris 10 Update 10.
Older Solaris 10 updates and Solaris 8/9 lack it, though.

The following patch does just that.  Tested with the appropriate runtest
invocation on i386-pc-solaris2.11 (ld v2 support), i386-pc-solaris2.9
(ld v1 support only), and x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu (GNU ld which doesn't
support either syntax).

Unless someone finds fault with the patch, I'll commit it in a day.

	* gcc.target/i386/clearcapv2.map: New file.
	* gcc.target/i386/i386.exp: Try it first before clearcap.map.
