I would recommend using a 'default m if SOC_IMX7' or 'default y if SOC_IMX7', so
any distros and users that have their own defconfigs still get a reasonable
default, but can choose between =m and =y based on their needs.

Having =y in imx_v6_v7_defconfig sounds reasonable if you go with 'default m'.
