I have two ideas, but neither is great:

a) we leave the individual per-soc options in the top-level menu
   and move the sub-options under those. This is a bit or a problem
   for options concerning all of OMAP, but I'm not sure how many of
   those are actually required.

b) We go back to Rob's version and make CONFIG_ARCH_OMAP the
   user-selectable option, and then find another solution for
   building a kernel with ARCH_OMAP set but none of individual
   options. This will work for anybody who has a full .config
   file, but still break the 'make savedefconfig' generated ones.
