Yeah, what was I thinking. So use some platform hook instead.

But Arnd of course is right; if the driver (currently) only works
on a certain platform, just mark it as such in the Makefile (erm,
Kconfig file).

Hey, we should probably do that with 90% of all drivers. But that
is a discussion for some other day :-)
