Indeed except the arch/arm/Kconfig file all the other files belong to
the mbebu subsystem and it is easier to to keep in our tree to handle them.

By the way, when you will pull our tree, we will still have it our own
mvebu/for-next branch. Will git managed to automagically resolve the
conflict by getting the resolution you will do in your branch?

A another solution could be to have a separate patch for the
arch/arm/Kconfig file that you keep in arm-soc.
