No, why can't everyone buid it for testing? What about when I want to
build a generic arm64 kernel to run on multiple SoCs?
Do not put dependancies in here that you really do not have. There's no
reason for this to be limited to that one chip, right? And if you allow
others to build the code, you will get proper bug reports when things
break, and others will fix them, which is what you want.
I think the ARCH_RANDOM_SOC_NAME is totally broken and needs to be, at
most, just an arch-specific thing, if even that.
Look at almost all other kernel drivers, they do not have those types of
