I support this change.

This was added by this _very old_ commit:

commit 45c7805311002362b42e98a664419bfe8ff23931

    removed unused code - began to merge alpha specific stuff - added
mac macros for suitable CPUs

I don't think there's many people who actively use PowerPC 405 besides
people who hack their DreamBox (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dreambox)
and students (since the core is freely available), so I don't care if
ever you want to remove the core relative to it.

Only a very small fraction of our DNA does anything; the rest is all
comments and ifdefs.
