[PATCH] Replace ppc kernel linker workaround

Description

As usual without caffeine, cher François, I have tried out today's post-2.20.1 git-cvs binutils. Updating to a newer version does not resolve the hrev25895 ppc kernel linking issue!

It appears though that sourcing the generic elf32ppc.sh script, like Linux does, remedies the issue while not regressing, at hrev37176.

Bigger cleanups are possible and under way but these two patches seem like the least intrusive way to resolve the issue at hand on the binutils side.
