LoongArch: Make WriteCombine configurable for ioremap()

LoongArch maintains cache coherency in hardware, but when paired with
LS7A chipsets the WUC attribute (Weak-ordered UnCached, which is similar
to WriteCombine) is out of the scope of cache coherency machanism for
PCIe devices (this is a PCIe protocol violation, which may be fixed in
newer chipsets).

This means WUC can only used for write-only memory regions now, so this
option is disabled by default, making WUC silently fallback to SUC for
ioremap(). You can enable this option if the kernel is ensured to run on
hardware without this bug.

Kernel parameter writecombine=on/off can be used to override the Kconfig
