ARM: correct detection of thumb mode

When a crash occurs in thumb mode the crash dump is incorrect. This is due
to the usage of a non-existing configuration variable CONFIG_ARM_THUMB in
the definition of macro thumb_mode(regs).

Use CONFIG_IS_ENABLED(SYS_THUMB_BUILD) to detect that the code has been
compiled for thumb mode. Remove ARM_THUMB from config_whitelist.txt.

With the patch crash dumps indicate thumb mode correctly.

On a system with thumb mode:

=> exception unaligned
data abort
pc : [<8f7a2b52>]          lr : [<8f7ab1ef>]
reloc pc : [<1780cb52>]    lr : [<178151ef>]
sp : 8ed8c3f8  ip : 8f7a2b4d     fp : 00000002

r7 : 8f7ab141  r6 : 00000000     r5 : 8ed8c3f9  r4 : 8f7f6390
r3 : 8ed9948c  r2 : 00000001     r1 : 00000000  r0 : 8f7f6390
Flags: nzCv  IRQs off  FIQs off  Mode SVC_32 (T)
Code: 8f7e 466d f105 0501 (e9d5) 6700

The Flags line has '(T)' and in the Code line the output is in u16 groups.

On a system without thumb mode:

=> exception breakpoint
prefetch abort
pc : [<7ff5a5c8>]          lr : [<7ff675ec>]
reloc pc : [<0000e5c8>]    lr : [<0001b5ec>]

Flags: nzCv  IRQs off  FIQs off  Mode SVC_32
Code: e1a0500d e2855001 e1c560d0 e3a00001 (e12fff1e)

The Flags line does not show '(T)' and in the Code line the output is in
u32 groups.
