[PATCH 1/5][Arm] Modify default tuning of armv8.1-m.main to use Cortex-M55

Previously, compiling with -march=armv8.1-m.main would tune for Cortex-M7.
However, the Cortex-M7 only supports up to Armv7e-M. The Cortex-M55 is the
earliest CPU that supports Armv8.1-M Mainline so is more appropriate. This
also has the effect of changing the branch cost function used, which will be
necessary to correctly prioritise conditional instructions over branches in
the rest of this patch series.

Regression tested on arm-none-eabi.
