[PATCH] octeon: Switch to kernel 5.10 and mark source only

Stijn Tintel reported a memory leak in octeon with kernel 5.10. With
kernel 5.4 it worked fine. The memory leak was seen with IPsec tunnels,
VRRP IPs, conntrack syncing, full IPv6 BGP feed, etc.
See details here: https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/pull/4610

Move this target to kernel 5.10 anyway, but mark it as source only so
the binaries will not be included in the next release. If someone fixes
the memory leak please remove the source only tag again so we can create
binary images again.
