Actually, this doesn't work well when doing an ARM 32 bit configuration
targeting Cortex-A53. Cortex-A53 is an ARMv8-A core, so
BR2_ARM_CPU_ARMV8A=y, but the gcc for ARM 32 bits doesn't support
-mstrict-align, causing a build failure.

However, the ARM optimization of wolfssl applies to both ARMv8 in 32 and
64 bits mode. So I've added another condition on BR2_aarch64=y around
the -mstrict-align workaround.

Applied with this change. Thanks!
