Default Compressed KDUMP core analysis support for PPC32 breaks PPC64 compressed kdump support

Unfortunately crash-6.0.3 does not work with ppc64 compressed kdumps
because of the recently-added support for the 32-bit ppc architecture:

- Implemented support for the analysis of 32-bit PPC compressed kdump

It fails like so:

# crash vmlinux vmcore

crash 6.0.3

It does not affect ELF core dumps.

I'll release crash-6.0.4 a bit sooner that I expected. Sorry for any
inconvenience this may have caused.
