Are these other drivers which select these Kconfigs not QCOM dependent?
We should make them so if that's not the case, and also add COMPILE_TEST
for them too.

To me the first and third approach look same. So I will leave it to Andy
to decide
which is cleaner.
For 2nd option, I would still say that there shouldn't be a need for
these drivers
to be compiled outside of the ARCH_QCOM, besides for compile test purpose.

Thanks & Regards
