    Even if I build the kernel with i386_defconfig, I get some compiled
    files within drivers/video/omap2.

    $ make ARCH=x86 i386_defconfig O=out_dir
    $ make ARCH=x86 O=out_dir

    $ ls out_dir/drivers/video/omap2
    built-in.o displays modules.builtin modules.order

    IMHO, drivers/video/omap2/ should not be compiled if the kernel is not
    built for omap2.
