In fact, in the case of the Ocelot and IQ80310, I _am_ the person
responsible for their visibility in Linus' tree at the moment, so you
shouldn't be hassling the owners of those symbols.

I put the references there, as guards for drivers which are specific to
those platforms, although the rest of the support for those platforms hasn't
yet been merged into Linus' tree.

Until such time as the {Strong,}ARM and MIPS arch maintainers feed the rest
of the code to support these platforms to Linus, it's unfair to hassle them
for the documentation. And until that time, it's not strictly necessary
either, because the user can't even see the options in question, surely?

You could perhaps argue that I shouldn't have sent code to Linus which
can't yet be enabled and used. If you did, I'd disagree with that.

The VIRTUAL_ER option is also my fault, and will go away shortly - it just
depends on how many times I have to resend the patch to Linus.
