[ Upstream commit e8e132e6885962582784b6fa16a80d07ea739c0f ]

This will avoid auto-vectorisation when building with higher
optimisation levels.

We don't know if the machine can support VSX and even if it's present
it's probably not going to be enabled at this point in boot.

These flag were both added prior to GCC 4.6 which is the minimum
compiler version supported by upstream, thanks to Segher for the
details.
