Subject: PPC64(LE) support in musl requires ALTIVEC

Hi,

We noticed that musl toolchain doesn't work on PPC64 e5500 cpus due to
Altived instructions in src/setjmp/powerpc64/setjmp.s [1].

A patch has been sent by Vincent Fazio to the Buildroot mailing list to disable
musl for such cpus [2].

Maybe the supported-platforms list could be updated [3].

Best regards,
Romain
