Comment (by Sebastian Huber):

 The reason for this is excessive use of copy and paste in the past
 combined with the long history of the PowerPC port.

 The bsps/powerpc/shared/start/linkcmds.base is similar to the
 bsps/arm/shared/start/linkcmds.base or
 bsps/riscv/shared/start/linkcmds.base. It uses memory regions and should
 be used for new BSPs.

 The 64-bit PowerPC ELFv2 ABI has no small data area.
