I believe only x86 and powerpc use the target specific feature (that I added
for x86 in the 4.3 time frame, and then added to powerpc last year).

In terms of target_flags and target_flags_explicit, the powerpc no longer uses
this field, since we have more than 32 flag bits, and needed to move the flag
processing to something that is HOST_WIDE_INT sized instead of int sized.  So,
it won't matter if you redefine the flag once again.  I don't believe the x86
uses it either (for much the same reason).  So, if it fixes the other ports, I
would say it is ok (but I haven't looked in detail at it).
