Target i586 by default on the i386 architecture, since after upstream's

Description

Target i586 by default on the i386 architecture, since after upstream's
change https://reviews.llvm.org/rL356631 ("[X86] Add CMPXCHG8B feature
flag. Set it for all CPUs except i386/i486 including 'generic'. Disable
use of CMPXCHG8B when this flag isn't set"), clang now correctly emits
calls to atomic_load_8, atomic_store_8, etc. when targeting i486,
and this means we can no longer link most modern programs, because we do
not have a libatomic, nor support for atomic functions in libc. See
also PR 230888, 220822, 233725, 234976, and more probably duplicates.

Note that in practice, clang has been incorrectly generating cmpxchg8b
instructions for years now, when targeting i486. So de facto nothing
really changes by doing this.
