Subject: [PATCH v2] mach-bcm: clean up config and build targets

Currently CONFIG_ARCH_BCM_MOBILE is used to select all Broadcom
mobile SoCs.  Instead, use that only as a config menu switch, and
define specific symbols like CONFIG_ARCH_BCM_281XX to select
a particular SoC family.  If ARCH_BCM_MOBILE is selected, all
of the SoCs will be selected by default, but this way each can be
disabled individually as well.

This allows more precision in controlling what gets built under
mach-bcm.  Another benefit to doing this is that it makes it obvious
that the code that implements SMC calls to control L2 cache is only
used for BCM281XX (for example).

Signed-off-by: Alex Elder <>
v2:  No longer uses Kbuild's $(<modulename>-y) variable mechanism.

This patch is based on the current arm-soc/for-next branch:
    e98cd72 arm-soc: document samsung merges

The patch is available here:
    Branch review/mach-bcm-cleanup-v2
