This patch isn't forcing MCPM to be enabled for Versatile Express.

* In order to build tc2_pm.c, MCPM must already be enabled (the
feature depends on MCPM in the Kconfig already)
* When this feature is enabled, the above link error occurs if
ARM_CPU_SUSPEND is not also enabled.

So, it is merely fixing the requirement that tc2_pm.c needs the CPU
suspend infrastructure, which in turn has no effect on whether MCPM
is enabled or not.
