[coreboot] [PATCH] RFC - move CAR config to socket config

I would say that the CACHE_AS_RAM should be moved in cases where all
boards support it simply because it is not really a property of the
board at that point.

Given that, I should probably also move things like ARCH_X86 into the
socket config as well.

What do you all think?
