The atomic instruction fix needs to be included in all GCC runtime
libraries. No PPC405 multilib will be added. Therefore, GCC needs to
be configured and built for PPC405 to address this erratum. If one does
not configure for PPC405, there is no reason to include the fix.
This also allows users to configure --with-cpu=405 for PPC405CR
and use -mcpu=405 for all other PPC405 processors which are not affected
by the erratum.
