binutils: ld-is-gold should not affect native and crosssdk recipes
gold linker does not support all architectures, currently arm and x86 are best supported, therefore we can not enable this as a full distro option where we need to support other architectures e.g. ppc, mips currently, if we enable ld-is-gold distro feature conditionally then it invalidates native and sdk version of native binutils because configure option would change. With this patch we limit ld-is-gold feature to imapact cross binutils and target binutils only. This means that we can reuse the sdk and native versions across architectures.
