Subject: mm/memtest: add ARCH_USE_MEMTEST

early_memtest() does not get called from all architectures.  Hence
enabling CONFIG_MEMTEST and providing a valid memtest=[1..N] kernel
command line option might not trigger the memory pattern tests as would be
expected in normal circumstances.  This situation is misleading.

The change here prevents the above mentioned problem after introducing a
new config option ARCH_USE_MEMTEST that should be subscribed on platforms
that call early_memtest(), in order to enable the config CONFIG_MEMTEST. 
Conversely CONFIG_MEMTEST cannot be enabled on platforms where it would
not be tested anyway.
