Re: [PATCH, rs6000] Fix PR91050 by adding a DRIVER_SELF_SPECS spec

This will break Darwin which has used DRIVER_SELF_SPECS in config/darwin.h
since they were introduced (and the equivalent before).

This is because Darwin has driver self-specs common to the PPC and X86 ports.

If this change is seen the way to go, then I guess one solution would be to rename the
driver specs in config/darwin.h => SUBTARGET_DRIVER_SELF_SPECS*** and then
put a dummy DRIVER_SELF_SPECS in i386/i386.h 
and append SUBTARGET_DRIVER_SELF_SPECS  to both the i386.h and rs6000.h 
cases.  (or something along those lines)

not sure what the objective is here - if you want to remove all pre-existing -mcpu from
the command line won’t %<mcpu*  work for you? (with the risk of removing -mcpunewthing
if it gets invented) ..


*** it seems a bit odd that the upper directory contains the SUBTARGET designation, but
that’s a pattern used before.
