[PATCH v1 1/4] Support PPC32 Core analysis on PPC64 Host



This patch enables crash on PPC64 to analyze the cores generated
on a PPC32 machine. I plan to look at adding support for PPC32 Kdump
core in the following patches. Running crash on a PPC32 board is not
a good thing to do. Hence using a PPC64 machine to do the same. There
is no support for analyzing target of a different endian-ness. I will
take a look at that later, once the PPC32 crash support is completed.

Note: The gdb-7.xx.patch hard codes the CFLAGS to include -m64 option
if we are building on a ppc64 host. So, we have to build from a 'ppc'
environment(Using setarch ppc).
