arm: just use the compiler's default yield support

yield. [GL #981]

## Platform quirks
### ARM
If the compilation ends with following error:
Error: selected processor does not support `yield' in ARM mode
You will need to set `-march` compiler option to `native`, so the compiler
recognizes `yield` assembler instruction. The proper way to set `-march=native`
would be to put it into `CFLAGS`, e.g. run `./configure` like this:
`CFLAGS="-march=native -Os -g" ./configure` plus your usual options.
If that doesn't work, you can enforce the minimum CPU and FPU (taken from Debian
armhf documentation):
* The lowest worthwhile CPU implementation is Armv7-A, therefore the recommended
build option is `-march=armv7-a`.
* FPU should be set at VFPv3-D16 as they represent the minimum specification of
the processors to support here, therefore the recommended build option is
The `configure` command should look like this:
CFLAGS="-march=armv7-a -mfpu=vfpv3-d16 -Os -g" ./configure
