I was trying to introduce the Kconfig before the code that depends on 
it; is it kosher to have it in the other order, looking for CONFIG_ 
defines that don't exist yet?

Though in this case the only user earlier in the series is the Samsung 
stuff, which doesn't care about FIQs, so I can just sort things as 

I'm not sure about AIC vs. ARCH_APPLE though. Right now the pattern is 
that AIC depends on ARCH_APPLE and also defaults to that. But then you 
can build with ARCH_APPLE and AIC disabled if you so choose, which does 
result in a broken system on these machines. AIC should build without 
ARCH_APPLE (as long as we're on ARM64), so we could reverse that.
