minimal: Add ability and description to build without the compiler.

anything similar), and will give you a MicroPython REPL on UART1 at 9600
baud. Pin PA13 will also be driven high, and this turns on the red LED on
the pyboard.
## Building without the built-in MicroPython compiler
This minimal port can be built with the built-in MicroPython compiler
disabled. This will reduce the firmware by about 20k on a Thumb2 machine,
and by about 40k on 32-bit x86. Without the compiler the REPL will be
disabled, but pre-compiled scripts can still be executed.
To test out this feature, change the `MICROPY_ENABLE_COMPILER` config
option to "0" in the mpconfigport.h file in this directory. Then
recompile and run the firmware and it will execute the
