We debated whether to have ARCH_* options at all on arm64 and we settled
for the middle ground - only add them for SoC families, not individual
SoCs. As for the kernel configuration that actually boots, we want the
arm64 defconfig to include all the supported SoCs and drivers (though
longer term I'd like to see more drivers built as modules by default).

The integrators could just select a SoC family and trim down unwanted
options, I don't think they rely on the kernel defconfig for a final
product. If this becomes an issue, I would rather have per-SoC
defconfigs than lots of Kconfig entries.
