[SH, committed] Adjust default branch cost


I've noticed that on e.g. SH2 and SH2A it seems to be better to set the
branch cost = 2, as it is done for the SH4 variants.  This results in
overall slightly smaller code (according to CSiBE) and better
utilization of the various T bit patterns.

Tested on rev 210305 with
 make -k check RUNTESTFLAGS="--target_board=sh-sim

and no new failures.
Committed as rev 210534.


	* config/sh/sh.c (sh_option_override): Set branch cost to 2 for all
	target variants.
