Continuing the project of removing dead configure tests ...
I see that prairiedog was the only buildfarm animal failing the
HAVE_PPC_LWARX_MUTEX_HINT test, and it seems pretty unlikely that
there are any assemblers remaining in the wild that can't parse that.
(I've confirmed that son-of-prairiedog, the NetBSD 9.3 installation
I'm cranking up on that hardware, is okay with it.)

So, PFA a little patch to remove that test.

It doesn't look like we can remove the adjacent test about "i"
syntax, unfortunately, because the AIX animals still fail that.

regards, tom lane
