I don't feel very strongly about it, but I'm wondering if it doesn't
make sense to keep BR2_PACKAGE_LIBNSPR_ARCH_SUPPORT. There is some
architecture-specific code in libnpsr, so every time we add a new CPU
architecture, we would have to poentially re-add this hidden option.

More specifically, I have been working on using Buildroot for a new CPU
architecture (not yet upstream, but will be submitted in the future),
and it was quite nice to have this BR2_PACKAGE_LIBNPSR_ARCH_SUPPORT to
disable libnpsr on this CPU architecture for the moment.

But again, I don't feel very strongly, it can very well be re-added
later if need be.
