This approach to 'fixing' the Kconfig doesn't scale particularly well
when we've got lots of platforms to deal with.

I much prefer using KALLCONFIG= to seed allno/allyes/allmod/rand configs.
If you want to target a particular SoC you have to do that anyway. And
you have to use that to ensure that you get a sane config state so that
Kconfig doesn't try and ask for the PHYS_OFFSET value - it will decide
to make that empty and then refuse to reprocess the Kconfig when you
try to build the kernel.

So I don't think there's any point to adding stuff like this.
