From: Rob Herring <robherring2 <at> gmail.com>
Subject: [RFC PATCH] ARM: initial multiplatform support
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.ports.arm.kernel
Date: Friday 24th August 2012 19:50:52 UTC (over 4 years ago)
From: Arnd Bergmann 

This lets us build a multiplatform kernel for experimental purposes.
However, it will not be useful for any real work, because it relies
on a number of useful things to be disabled for now:

* SMP support is turned off because of conflicting symbols.
  Marc Zyngier has proposed a solution by adding a new SOC
  operations structure to hold indirect function pointers
  for these, but that work is currently stalled

* We turn on SPARSE_IRQ unconditionally, which is not supported
  on most platforms. Each of them is currently in a different
  state, but most are being worked on.

* A common clock framework is in place since v3.4 but not yet
  being used. Work on this is on its way.

* DEBUG_LL for early debugging is currently disabled.

* THUMB2_KERNEL does not work with allyesconfig because the
  kernel gets too big

[Rob Herring]: Rebased to not be dependent on the mass mach header rename.
As a result, omap2plus, imx, mxs and ux500 are not converted. Highbank,
socfpga, and vexpress are converted. There's probably a few others that can
be converted easily, too.

The kconfig and makefile changes have been simplified some. Instead of 3
kconfig
symbols per mach, there are only 2. arch/arm/Kconfig is getting kind of
large.
I think it should be split between Kconfig and Kconfig.mach to separate out
the
mach specific parts.
