Since 617276307cd4c ("ARM: vexpress: convert to multi-platform") it has been
impossible to select ARCH_VEXPRESS without ARCH_MULTIPLATFORM.

ARCH_MULTIPLATFORM doesn't make sense for NOMMU targets, not least because
of the need to hard-code the memory map. However, it should still be
possible to run NOMMU kernels on top of the Versatile Express by selecting
it as the only platform.

This patch creates a shim ARCH_VEXPRESS_NOMMU config option in the 'choice'
for "ARM system type" to make this possible again.
