Motivation for this change

Update the config.sub and config.guess files that are replaced during some cross-compiles. This is specifically to support the Genode target that was added to lib/systems a few months ago. Note that the Genode toolchain and libc are still in an overlay and not in Nixpkgs.

This is a neat feature so I added a mention to the Nixpkgs manual.

Things done
  • Tested using sandboxing (nix.useSandbox on NixOS, or option sandbox in nix.conf on non-NixOS linux)
  • Built on platform(s)
    • NixOS
    • macOS
    • other Linux distributions
  • Tested via one or more NixOS test(s) if existing and applicable for the change (look inside nixos/tests)
  • Tested compilation of all pkgs that depend on this change using nix-shell -p nixpkgs-review --run "nixpkgs-review wip"
  • Tested execution of all binary files (usually in ./result/bin/)
  • Determined the impact on package closure size (by running nix path-info -S before and after)
  • Ensured that relevant documentation is up to date
  • Fits
