[PATCH] RISC-V: Don't build XIP kernels under allyesconfig

We have a fixed memory layout for XIP kernels, which means we can't
support very large kernel images.  This is good enough for now, as XIP
users aren't likely to build huge kernels.  It does, however, mean that
allyesconfig breaks which is an issue.

This makes XIP depend on !COMPILE_TEST.  That's a bit of a hack, but
there are some other !COMPILE_TEST dependencies.  This will result in
build bots getting less coverage for XIP, but it's the best I could come
up with.

I've squashed this into the XIP patch, which is on for-next.
