    We first need to ensure that we don't have any cases which explore the
    current behaviour. I wonder how the following will be interpreted with
    the ARCH_IXP4XX=y and ARCH_IXP4XX=n cases:

    arch/arm/common/Kconfig:config SA1111
    arch/arm/common/Kconfig: bool
    arch/arm/common/Kconfig: select DMABOUNCE
    arch/arm/common/Kconfig:config DMABOUNCE
    arch/arm/common/Kconfig: bool

    arch/arm/mach-ixp4xx/Kconfig:if ARCH_IXP4XX
    arch/arm/mach-ixp4xx/Kconfig:config DMABOUNCE
    arch/arm/mach-ixp4xx/Kconfig- bool
    arch/arm/mach-ixp4xx/Kconfig- default y
    arch/arm/mach-ixp4xx/Kconfig- depends on PCI

    We also have:

    arch/arm/mm/Kconfig:config CPU_32v6K
    arch/arm/mm/Kconfig- bool "Support ARM V6K processor extensions" if !SMP
    arch/arm/mm/Kconfig- depends on CPU_V6
    arch/arm/mm/Kconfig- default y if SMP

    which gives: option available on V6 CPUs, user selectable on V6 UP, always
    selected on V6 SMP.


    arch/arm/mm/Kconfig:config CPU_V7
    arch/arm/mm/Kconfig: bool "Support ARM V7 processor"
    arch/arm/mm/Kconfig: depends on ARCH_INTEGRATOR
    arch/arm/mm/Kconfig: select CPU_32v6K

    It would be undesirable for CPU_V7 to depend on CPU_V6 being set. (V7
    always has V6K.) I guess V6K would have to become:

    config CPU_32v6K
    bool "Support ARM V6K processor extensions" if !SMP && !CPU_V7
    depends on CPU_V6 || CPU_V7
    default y if SMP || CPU_V7

    and the select statement removed from CPU_V7.
