[PATCH v2 0/3] Separate generic header usage from ARCH_MULTIPLATFORM

The original aim of this series was to restore the ability to build a NOMMU
kernel for Versatile Express, something that was lost when we converted

In order to do this, it is necessary to abstract the use of generic headers
from selection of ARCH_MULTIPLATFORM so that the two can be used separately.
This is necessary becuase building a multiplatform kernel for processors
without and MMU doesn't make sense (it is necessary to hardcode certain mem-map
related data) and the versatile express can host NOMMU processors.

This series performs this separation, and then goes on to add a 'dummy'
ARCH_VEXPRESS_NOMMU platform that can be selected as standalone platform.

Patch 2 was sent to the list as an RFC some time ago where it was ACKd, but
alone is not sufficient to solve the problem, hence this follow-up series.

Changes since V1:
 - Rebase on to 3.10-rc1: fixup conflict from CONFIG_UNCOMPRESS_INCLUDE-foo

Jonathan Austin (3):
  ARM: allow platforms to use generic headers without
  ARM: nommu: re-enable use of vexpress without ARCH_MULTIPLATFORM
  ARM: vexpress-nommu: add a Makefile.boot to restore single-platform
