This comment doesn't mean much, anymore.
It was added in commit 159428538323 ("arm64: Add Kconfig option for APM
X-Gene SOC family"). Why someone cared so much about the sorting of the
two defaults is unclear to me. Maybe only to make sure future commits
wouldn't mess up the sorting order. Anyhow, it seems it was just
forgotten to remove that line in commit 62aceb8ff4b3 ("arm64: make
default NR_CPUS 8") which again made it a single item list.
