kcov: improve CONFIG_ARCH_HAS_KCOV help text
The help text for CONFIG_ARCH_HAS_KCOV is stale, and describes the feature as being enabled only for x86_64, when it is now enabled for several architectures, including arm, arm64, powerpc, and s390. Let's remove that stale help text, and update it along the lines of hat for ARCH_HAS_FORTIFY_SOURCE, better describing when an architecture should select CONFIG_ARCH_HAS_KCOV.

config ARCH_HAS_KCOV

help
- KCOV does not have any arch-specific code, but currently it is enabled
- only for x86_64. KCOV requires testing on other archs, and most likely
- disabling of instrumentation for some early boot code.
+ An architecture should select this when it can successfully
+ build and run with CONFIG_KCOV. This typically requires
+ disabling instrumentation for some early boot code.
