Zynq has been multiplatform capable from the start. Ideally we'd let
users build the driver for any architecture and specify the exact
dependencies, it doesn't even have to be limited to ARM.

You probably want something like

	config CAN_XILINX
	tristate "Xilinx CAN"
	depends on COMMON_CLK && HAS_MMIO  # whatever you need for other architectures
