It's the same reason we enable compile testing on all other drivers
which will never be used outside original platforms. There are many
of such examples because we want to increase the build coverage to as
many different configurations as possible. There could be also another
benefit - easier code reusability - although it is purely theoretical in
this case, I think.

Krzysztof
