I'm afraid, but we don't want to have per-SoC options in Buildroot. We
have discussed this in the past, and there are way too many ARM SoC to
make this reasonable. Why is this patch needed at all?

For all other ARM platforms, the user simply has to choose the
appropriate ARM core (Cortex-A8, Cortex-A9, Cortex-A15, etc.), and
that's it. We also provide default configurations (see the configs/
directory) for various well-known hardware platforms, and those
configurations correctly define which ARM core should be used.
