[fpc-pascal] Free Pascal Support for ARM Architecture

So, the situation is like this:

1) Target ARM architecture needs to be "told" to FPC since FPC needs
this information to do correct code generation.

2) FPC does not inform GNU assembler of intended ARM architecture for
which assembler code is generated for, which doesn't prevent GNU as
from generating correct binary.

3) GNU as doesn't check if FPC-generated instructions are valid,
because it does not know target architecture for which it is
assembling. But (as stated in previous point), GNU as is still able to
generate correct binary.
