[lucid] [armel] Please add CONFIG_ARM_THUMBEE=y to the armel kernel configs

Hi all,

It looks like some ThumbEE based JIT code is to be merged into openjdk-6 for
lucid.

The ThumbEE extension has a small amount of additional per-process context
which will not be switched properly unless CONFIG_ARM_THUMBEE is enabled,
leading to potential instability of user processes which use this extension.

(I believe the option was enabled at some previous point in the
linux-fsl-imx51 tree, but may have fallen out during a recent fsl BSP
merge.)

This applies to all ARMv7 platforms and should therefore be applied in both
the linux-fsl-imx51 and linux-mvl-dove trees (and any non-official ones
people want to use for lucid).

Cheers
---Dave (dmart)
