The current meson option 'machine' should only specify the ISA, which is
not sufficient for Arm, where setting ISA implies other setting as well.
Add a new meson option, 'platform', which differentiates the type of the
build (native/generic) and sets machine accordingly, unless the user
chooses to override it.
The 'machine' option also doesn't describe very well what it sets, so
introduce a new option 'cpu_instruction_set', but keep 'machine' for
backwards compatibility.
These two new variables, taken together, achieve what 'machine' was
setting per architecture - setting the ISA in x86 build and setting
native/default 'build type' in aarch64 build - is now properly being set
for all architectures in a uniform manner.
