[Buildroot] [PATCH v2] toolchain: Enable Glibc for all little-endian ARCs with atomic ops

Initially we had a port only for ARCv2 cores but
then with a simple change ARCompact cores got supported as well.

So we generalize from BR2_archs to BR2_arcle as we haven't tried
to get glibc working on big-endian ARCs yet.

Also we never bothered to check avaialbility of atomic
instructions in the core but in case of Glibc for ARC this is
really a must, so we add this check here.

Note in case of uClibc we may have system w/o HW atomics but:
 1. Only single-core systems are allowed
 2. Atomic instructions are emulated via arc_usr_cmpxchg syscall
