ARC: allow selection of MMU page size
Modern ARC cores (those sporting MMU of version 3 and 4) allow selection of different page sizes (4, 8 or 16 kB) during ASIC design creation. And it's important to build a toolchain with page size setting that matches hardware. Otherwise user-space applications will fail on execution due to unexpected data layout/alignment etc. [Thomas: slightly improve help text, fix indentation of help text.] Signed-off-by: Alexey Brodkin <abrodkin@synopsys.com> Cc: Anton Kolesov <akolesov@synopsys.com> Cc: Thomas Petazzoni <thomas.petazzoni@free-electrons.com> Cc: Arnout Vandecappelle <arnout@mind.be> Signed-off-by: Thomas Petazzoni <thomas.petazzoni@free-electrons.com>

+ MMU starting from version 3 (found in ARC 770) and now
+ version 4 (found in ARC HS38) allows the selection of the
+ page size during ASIC design creation.
+
+ The following options are available for MMU v3 and v4: 4kB,
+ 8kB and 16 kB.
+
+ The default is 8 kB (that really matches the only page size
+ in MMU v2). It is important to build a toolchain with page
+ size matching the hardware configuration. Otherwise
