Yes, I'm aware of that. However, there are several configuration
depending on "!MMU". Allowing !MMU on ARCH_MULTI_V4...V7 would open up
new combination of configurations... This patch avoids this as much as
possible, by making !MMU only available for ARCH_MULTI_V7M.

I'm not sure what tests/verification would be expected before allowing
those new configurations... Personally, I also don't see much value in
allowing these configurations.
