compiling PPC kernels using binutils-

Since binutils-, the final stages in the kernel build process fail:

| objcopy vmlinux.elf vmlinux.elf --add-section=.note=note \
|         --add-section=sysmap=../../../System.map -R .comment
| objcopy: vmlinux.elf: File truncated
| make[1]: *** [vmlinux.elf] Error 1

It looks like objcopy no longer creates temporary files (the manpage states it
does), so it no longer works if the input and output file are the same.

After reverting to binutils- everything worked fine again.

The changelog entry says:

|     (closes: Bug#58522)
|   * Closes other older bug (closes: Bug#55801)

when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
