As far as I can tell, upstream GCC does not support POWER7 with ppc64le,
or the firmware-based emulation is broken. Based on my review, we are
not using any special flags to request POWER8 in gcc or glibc, and yet
the object code produced by GCC does not work on your POWER7 machines
(or maybe only some of them?).
Or put differently, based on IBM's comments in this thread, I don't see
any reasonable way to address bug 1295797.
