Hi Brian,

I actually added a bunch of these in other places, but have stopped
doing so because Russell didn't like them, and I tend to follow
his argument now that it's actually pretty confusing.

In case of at91, we can do better now, once we have multiplatform
enabled, and we can simply remove the SOC_SAM_V7 and SOC_SAM_V4_V5
symbols entirely (if Alexandre's patch doesn't already do that).

With multiplatform enabled, you no longer have to select a particular
SoC, because we always get the default selection and the kernel
will build without any one of them being enabled.
