I think you misunderstood the patch I sent.
It does two things:
1. Follow the thumb of rule of the current Kconfig format
- The timer driver is selected by the platform (exynos in this case)
- User can't select the driver in the menuconfig
- There is no dependency on the platform except for compilation test
2. Add the COMPILE_TEST
- User can select the driver for compilation testing. This is for
allyesconfig when doing compilation test coverage (exynos timer could be
compiled on other platform). As the delay code is not portable, we have
to restrict the compilation on the ARM platform, this is why there is
the dependency on ARM.
I am currently looking at splitting the delay code in order to prevent
this restriction on this driver and some others drivers.
