Re: ppc64le: expected localentry:0 `pthread_condattr_destroy'

This makes ld warn about --plt-localentry if a version of glibc
without the necessary checks is detected, and revises the

	* elf64-ppc.c (ppc64_elf_tls_setup): Warn on --plt-localentry
	without checks.
	* (Target_powerpc::scan_relocs): Warn on --plt-localentry
	without checks.
	* ld.texinfo (plt-localentry): Revise.
