Unfortunately, this totally screws multiplatform support - with this
merged, we now can enable all CPUs from ARM720T upwards into a single
kernel - and that is illegal.
The problem is that Integrator can be ARM720T all the way up to ARMv6.
So, when ARCH_INTEGRATOR is enabled, you are presented with the
individual CPUs which the platform supports as options to select.
This results in randconfig seeing all the CPU options, which it can
then enable, resulting in:
which then causes:
arch/arm/include/asm/cmpxchg.h:114:2: error: #error "SMP is not supported on this platform"
arch/arm/include/asm/atomic.h:137:2: error: #error SMP not supported on pre-ARMv6 CPUs
Integrator doesn't fit into the "is it a pre-ARMv6 or not" platform
structure chosen in the early days of multiplatform support, because
it straddles that boundary.

according to speedtest.net.
