Re: [PATCH-v3] [SPARC] Add a workaround for the LEON3FT store-store errata

Let's forget -mfix-gr712rc for now, -mfix-ut700 is enough I think.

I'm not thrilled with this, it's undocumented, the other workaround don't have 
it and I don't think that we really need it.

OK for mainline and 7 branch modulo the above two remarks.
