Hi, Arnd and Shawn,

  Many thanks for your work on resolving the FSL_SOC breaking allmodconfig.

  Formerly many drivers on PPC depend on a FSL_SOC configuration, when they
are shared on our ARM platform, I add this configuration internally for
quick reference and also some internal developers' requirement, thus I
also add it into my upstream code.

 Yes, only a subset of these drivers are shared between our ARM and PPC
platforms. Since there will be allmodconfig breaking fault due to the
FSL_SOC configuration, we will try to fix this or select another dependency,
I will also inform our driver owners about this.
Below drivers are shared on LS1021A platform currently:


Thanks and Best Regards,
