If the number of architectures supported is getting large enough then
it's probably reasonable to just enable the driver all the time,
probably it'll also appear on some PCI cards or something anyway. The
things people are complaining about here are things that are clearly
unlikely to appear on other architectures like a particular SoC vendor's
custom IPs that they don't license out.
