I didn't remove it to keep the sub menus SOC_SAM_V7 -> SOC_SAMA5D4 and
SOC_SAMA5D3, SOC_SAM_V4_V5 -> SOC_AT91SAM9 and SOC_AT91RM9200. But I can
also expose SOC_AT91RM9200, SOC_AT91SAM9, SOC_SAMA5D3 and SOC_SAMA5D4
instead of SOC_SAM_V7 and SOC_SAM_V4_V5 and remove them.

Indeed, with multiplatform, the kernel will compile without any of those
