okay

ARM64 sounds good.

Right.

To me it does not really matter. Indeed as you said one cannot disable
building of one particular Exynos SoCs.

However we could still want not build some parts of such SoCs (like
clock, pinctrl etc). I don't see much benefit for such case except when
someone would like to drastically reduce the size of kernel image (for
whatever reasons he has.).

On the other hand having separate symbols causes duplication and
obfuscates a little the Kconfig/Makefile. I like keeping things simple
so one symbol for all ARM64 Exynos clocks sounds good.

Sylwester preferred current approach. You and Pankaj seem to prefer one
symbol-way.

Should we make a voting? :)

Best regards,
Krzysztof
