For the first shot I would prefer to use WITH_GAMECUBE inside of
elf_ppc_load(). In longterm I don't see any reason why GameCube can't
use the purgatory code like the other archs and get the memory maps from
the device tree. However I'm not sure if GameCube still runs on a recent
kernel: now that arc/ppc isn't available anymore GameCube has to pass a
dtb somehow and this isn't the case. So therefore I would like the keep
#ifdef and the exisiting behavior until someone clears this up.
