Hi,

I decided to read powerpc code that according to statements only people
with good intuition could understand so I was curious what these experts
do to get good performance.

Here its most elementary problem, it wasn't turned on. Fixing that is
obvious, add implementation to ifunc. 

	* sysdeps/powerpc/powerpc64/multiarch/stpcpy.c: Fix ifunc.

LGTM, thanks for checking on that.
