Good luck making it simple...

If its mass scriptage you want, I can supply it... but it ain't pretty...

But frankly there is no substitute from manually editing the
gcc/config/${ARCH}/{linux.h,linux64.h,linux-elf.h} file(s) for the
architecture you are working with.

Mass scriptage (of which I must admit I am guilty) may be good for
your own builds, but it isn't terribly appropriate to the book...

The patch, though not ideal, if maintained correctly is less prone to error
