Do all xscale have iwmmxt?

I should probably have provided a longer description of the problem.
The build error is in arch/arm/kernel/pj4-cp0.c, which calls
iwmmxt_task_release unconditionally. The code is obviously
copy-pasted from arch/arm/kernel/xscale-cp0.c, which does much
of the same, but uses both run-time and compile-time conditionals
for iwmmxt.
