arm: add CONFIG_MACH_TYPE setting and documentation

CONFIG_MACH_TYPE is used to set the machine type number in the
common arm code instead of setting it in the board code.
Boards with dynamically discoverable machine types can still set the
machine type number in the board code.

Only boards that have multiple machine types supported
in a single configuration file and the machine type is
runtime discoverable, do not have to use this setting.
