The diff looks a bit odd to me, I do not understand why we would be
moving away from the default mtune. Anyway you have my vote. I know
Adrian gets sometime inspiration from fedora team, maybe time to reach
a consensus with them also. IBM seems to be going toward ppc64el
anyway, so I believe that should not affect too many people.
