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.
