It's a bit annoying that we need a patch to the kernel to make sure
that gcc can build a working kernel since it means that people not
using the Qemu defconfig for SPARC builds will not get the patch.

Though the problem has been around since a long time, so if people
really bothered about working SPARC support in upstream kernel/gcc,
they should have complained earlier.

So: applied, thanks!
