libc/glibc: change default of "forced unwind" to 'y'
Virtually all our targets do support stack unwinding. For some of them, ./configure can't detect that, and the build fails later on. So, default to force unwind, and let the user disable it if it breaks in his/her case. The previous changeset (f44286235a07) was empty, as spotted by Benoît.

If your toolchain fails building while building the C library
start files, or the complete C library, with a message like:
configure: error: forced unwind support is required
- then you may try setting this to 'y'. Otherwise, leave it to 'n'.
+ then you may try chmaging this option. Otherwise, leave it to
+ the default 'y'.
The issue seems to be related to building NPTL on old versions
of glibc (and possibly eglibc as well) on some architectures
