I think it would be more consistent with the other platforms to have
a symbol in drivers/soc/imx/Kconfig to control whether we build
that driver.

If the driver is well written, it should be possible to allow compile
testing it on any architecture (please test this, at least on x86).

For some SoCs, we also allow running 32-bit kernels, so it would
not be wrong to allow enabling the symbol on 32-bit ARM as
well, but this is probably something where you want to consider
the bigger picture to see if you want to support that configuration
or not.
