Some 64-bit toolchains uses the wrong ISA variant for compiling 32-bit
kernels, even with -m32. Debian's powerpc64le is one such case, and
that is because it is built with --with-cpu=power8.

So when cross compiling a 32-bit kernel with a 64-bit toolchain, set
-mcpu=powerpc initially, which is the generic 32-bit powerpc machine
type and scheduling model. CPU and platform code can override this
with subsequent -mcpu flags if necessary.

This is not done for 32-bit toolchains otherwise it would override
their defaults, which are presumably set appropriately for the
environment (moreso than a 64-bit cross compiler).

This fixes a lot of build failures due to incompatible assembly when
compiling 32-bit kernel with th Debian powerpc64le 64-bit toolchain.
