    Subject[PATCH] fix ppc kernels after build-id addition

    This patch fixes arch/ppc kernels, at least for prep subarch, after
    build-id addition. Without the patch, kernels were 3 times the size and
    bootloader refused to load them. Now they are back to normal again.
    The patch is very similar to David Millers sparc patch, just applied to
    ppc architecture.

    Tested only with Roland McGrath's "Use LDFLAGS_MODULE only for .ko
    links" patch applied - boots and works fine.
