Do you actually need a separate defconfig?

If possible, just add your drivers to multi_v7_defconfig, otherwise
include a justification in the patch changelog why your platform
should have its own defconfig file.
We need a separate defconfig so that customers and developers have some chance of understanding what kernel drivers apply to their SoC. That way they can optimize kernel size if desired. Will update patch changelog in next version.
