Impact:

We recently adjusted CONFIG_NVM to fix a build failure. The change
causing this was actually a mis-merge and will be reverted. However the
question came up whether it makes sense at all to build any raspberry
kernel with NVME support at all. There currently is no way to attach any
NVME to a raspberry pi, so lets turn off driver support for it for that
kernel in total.

Fix:

Disable the relevant config options:

# CONFIG_NVM is not set
...
# CONFIG_NVME_FC is not set
# CONFIG_NVME_TARGET is not set

Regression potential:

None, we are disabling support for a piece of hardware that doesn't
exist on the RaspberryPi boards - smoke tested on a RaspberryPi 3B+
board.
