The ARCH_SHMOBILE removal and cleanup is fine, but I wonder about
the newly added symbols for specific SoCs. I see you already have a
couple of those, but the other manufacturers don't.

I think what happened here is that I tried to reject those additions
normally, but I never noticed yours. From what I see in drivers,
you have additional symbols depending on these in clk, pinctrl,
drivers/soc, and the dtb files, so at the very least we can't
just drop the config options, but I'd still like to see this work
more like other platforms.

Any ideas what we can do here?
