I'm a little embarassed to admit that the hack I put in with the aim
of better supporting non-fPIC shared libs on powerpc64 is almost
completely useless.  The thing is that -fsection-anchors, on by
default, results in non-fPIC shared libs that won't support overriding
of global vars anyway.  So there isn't much point in avoiding an
-mcmodel=medium optimisation.

Bootstrapped etc. powerpc64-linux, OK'd offline by David.

	* config/rs6000/rs6000.c (toc_relative_ok): Delete.
	(rs6000_emit_move): Use SYMBOL_REF_LOCAL_P instead.
