Subject: [PATCH v3] mtd: parsers: bcm63xx: simplify CFE detection

Instead of trying to parse CFE version string, which is customized by some
vendors, let's just check that "CFE1" was passed on argument 3.

 v3: keep COMPILE_TEST compatibility by adding a new function that only checks
     fw_arg3 when CONFIG_MIPS is defined.
 v2: use CFE_EPTSEAL definition and avoid using an additional function.
