Subject[PATCH] i386: Fix usage of -mtune when X86_GENERIC=y or CONFIG_MCORE2=y
Two fixes to arch/i386/Makefile.cpu:

1) When X86_GENERIC=y is set, use -mtune=i686 if $(CC) doesn't
support -mtune=generic. GCC 4.1.2 and earlier don't support
-mtune=generic. When building a generic kernel for a distro
that runs on i586 and better, it is nice to use
-march=i586 -mtune=i686 instead of plain -march=i586.

2) Use $(call tune) instead of hardcoded -mtune when CONFIG_MCORE2=y.
This makes it possible to have CONFIG_MCORE2=y when using GCC 3.3,
which uses -mcpu instead of -mtune. Also dropped fallback to
-mtune=generic and -mtune=i686, because -march=i686 already
implies -mtune=i686.

The patch is against 2.6.20, but Makefile.cpu hasn't changed recently.
