Good point. I only tested with `make oldconfig`, so using "Owl" should
tidy the sort order in `make menuconfig` while at it. (I believe there
were more inconsistent examples, such as Armada 3700 vs. MVEBU...)
Note that I have not come across any explanation for "OWL" as an
acronym, so I'm guessing it's the bird and therefore capitalizing it.
Apart from S900, actions-semi.com shows V series S900VR and S700 as well
as GT series GT7 Cortex-A53 based SoCs. My guess[*] is these could all
be handled as ARCH_OWL, adding further differentiation below if
necessary; but Bubblegum-96 seemed the only available arm64 board for
testing so far, so any comments from Actions will be appreciated.
[*] The S500 vendor device tree was actually using ATM series models for
various nodes, so I'm inferring that the product series are closely
However, if you would prefer ARCH_ACTIONS I wouldn't mind either - we
just need to keep it consistent across arm and arm64.
