I think you are looking for 'make kernel_menuconfig CONFIG_TARGET=subtarget'
this will use the config for the subtarget selected in the previous step.
Turning on SOC_SAMA5* for all at91, including legacy, is likely not
what you want.

'CONFIG_SUBTARGET' doesn't exist use 'CONFIG_TARGET=subtarget' where
the subtarget to be modified has been selected using menuconfig.
With the above option dont replace 'subtarget' with the subtarget name.

Kind regards,
