I don't see a reason to disable this in general for s390. COMPILE_TEST
was only disabled for s390 because a lot of irrelevant configs didn't
compile and it would cause a lot of unnecessary work to fix that.

However the !COMPILE_TEST dependency here looks more like it was
misused in lack of a possibility to detect if the config was generated
with allyesconfig/allmodconfig. Maybe that could be added somehow to
Kconfig?
