I think if we want to support this for downstreams we need
to look at something better than the default-configs/
mechanism for it. (Perhaps the kconfig-alike Paolo mentioned
in a previous thread?)

My dividing line for "should something go in a specific
architecture's default-configs/ list" is "is this an SoC
or real piece of hardware that is naturally limited to
one or a few SoCs".
