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.
