Personally I'd expect all the Tegra machine drivers to be enabled in the
upstream defconfig files all the time, such that we don't need to make
the Kconfig options default y, nor have users manually turn the relevant
options on, at all.

There are SoC-specific drivers for the components (Tegra20 I2S, Tegra30
I2S, etc.), but the *machine* drivers generally don't know anything
about that. DT instantiates the correct component drivers for the SoC,
and the machine driver just uses whatever it's linked to without caring
too-much/at-all about whether it's hooked to a Tegra20 I2S or a Tegra30
I2S device.
