Here's how that looks on x86...

*
* Hardware Spinlock drivers
*
Hardware Spinlock drivers (HWSPINLOCK) [N/m/y] (NEW) ?

There is no help available for this option.
Symbol: HWSPINLOCK [=n]
Type : tristate
Prompt: Hardware Spinlock drivers
Location:
-> Device Drivers
Defined at drivers/hwspinlock/Kconfig:5



No help ? Ok whatever, let's see what happens..

Hardware Spinlock drivers (HWSPINLOCK) [N/m/y] (NEW) m

And then nothing, because none of the drivers that depend on this are available for x86
because of stuff like this..
