That's historical I guess. Comes from commit 14cf11af6cf6 ("powerpc:
Merge enough to start building in arch/powerpc.")

The only thing I did is removed the -Wa,-mpower4 from the line, leaving
the remaining part. Initialy it was:

cpu-as-$(CONFIG_PPC_BOOK3S_64) += $(call as-option,-Wa$(comma)-mpower4)
$(call as-option,-Wa$(comma)-many)

It was added in 2018 by commit 960e30029863 ("powerpc/Makefile: Fix
PPC_BOOK3S_64 ASFLAGS"). There is a long explanation it the commit.

Should we remove it ?
