Motivation for this change

This reverts #97807 and instead implements @glittershark's suggestion (NixOS/nix#4003 (comment)) to use an ellipsis in pkgs/top-level/default.nix so that we don't error on unexpected arguments. This allows nix-shell -A hello to work properly, as well as (hopefully -- we won't know for sure until the community box gets redeployed next) allows ofborg's aarch64 builds + evals to succeed again (for an example of the brokenness, see:

Things done
  • Tested using sandboxing (nix.useSandbox on NixOS, or option sandbox in nix.conf on non-NixOS linux)
  • Built on platform(s)
    • NixOS
    • macOS
    • other Linux distributions
  • Tested via one or more NixOS test(s) if existing and applicable for the change (look inside nixos/tests)
  • Tested compilation of all pkgs that depend on this change using nix-shell -p nixpkgs-review --run "nixpkgs-review wip"
  • Tested execution of all binary files (usually in ./result/bin/)
  • Determined the impact on package closure size (by running nix path-info -S before and after)
  • Ensured that relevant documentation is up to date
  • Fits

Just a quick note: ofborg's aarch64 builds appear to be succeeding again! Woohoo!
