Revert libsanitizer patches or fix 59009

It has been a week since the libsanitizer patches were checked in, which broke
the PowerPC64 Linux system along with others (PR 59009 for powerpc).  Please
revert these patches while you are working on proper fixes for all of the hosts
and targets.

Quoting from the GCC development plan:

Patch Reversion

If a patch is committed which introduces a regression on any target which the
Steering Committee considers to be important and if:

the problem is reported to the original poster; 48 hours pass without the
original poster or any other party indicating that a fix will be forthcoming in
the very near future; two people with write privileges to the affected area of
the compiler determine that the best course of action is to revert the patch;
then they may revert the patch.

(The list of important targets will be revised at the beginning of each release
cycle, if necessary, and is part of the release criteria.)

After the patch has been reverted, the poster may appeal the decision to the
Steering Committee.

Note that no distinction is made between patches which are themselves buggy and
patches that expose latent bugs elsewhere in the compiler.
