x86: Allow generating user-space headers without a compiler

When bootstrapping an architecture, it's usual to generate the kernel's
user-space headers (make headers_install) before building a compiler.  Move
the compiler check (for asm goto support) to the archprepare target so that
it is only done when building code for the target.
