It is only used in the variant choice, so kconfig will automatically
change to the default value (586 for i386, nocona for x86-64) and as
"generic" is not really well defined (see the description in the GCC
manual) I think that is good enough - But yeah, we should inform the
user about it using the legacy support.

I'll add it now, thanks.
