[Buildroot] ARCH not being sent by make menuconfig for "geode" - kernel compile fails to start

When "Target Architecture Variant" is selected as 'geode', BR2_ARCH in 
.config is not set at all, and as result the toolchain fails to build.

I've seen this topic here about a year ago along with a patch to fix it. 
Unfortuantely the fix has never been adopted. ( 
http://lists.busybox.net/pipermail/buildroot/2007-July/003704.html )

Please can we get this patch into target/Config.in.arch?
