Yes, I think you're right.

The code above was added in 2006 in f48b8296b315 ("[PATCH] powerpc32:
Set cpu explicitly in kernel compiles").

Back then the target CPU selection was 64-bit only, so setting it to
powerpc always for 6xx was fine.

It was only recently that Christophe made the target CPU selection
available on 32-bit, see 0e00a8c9fd92 ("powerpc: Allow CPU selection
also on PPC32").

So since that commit the above has been overriding any specific CPU
selection it seems, eg:
gcc -Wp,-MD,init/.do_mounts.o.d ...
-mcpu=powerpc -mbig-endian -m32 ...
-mcpu=e300c2 ...
-mcpu=powerpc ...
../init/do_mounts.c

That seems like a bug.

It would be good to clean up the CPU selection logic, it's a bit of a
mess. But for now it's probably best to just move the above snippet
prior to the TARGET_CPU logic.

cheers
