Check for invalid E500 option combinations

If you try to use a PowerPC compiler with E500 features enabled at the 
same time as some other features (that are not present in E500 CPUs), it 
does not work well and ICEs are likely.  This patch adds a check for such 
combinations and associated errors.  (The situation is most likely to 
arise when users have a wrapper script passing a series of E500 options to 
the compiler, but then try to use that script as a compiler for some other 
variant and fail to override all the options necessary.)

Tested powerpc-none-linux-gnuspe.  OK to commit?

	* config/rs6000/rs6000.c (rs6000_override_options): Give errors
	for E500 options together with 64-bit or FPRs.
