rGf0990e104b08: [PowerPC]: e500 target can't use lwsync, use msync instead
Summary

The e500 core has a silicon bug that triggers an illegal instruction
program trap on any sync other than msync. Other cores will typically
ignore illegal sync types, and the documentation even implies that the
'illegal' bits are ignored.

Address this hardware deficiency by only using msync, like the PPC440.
