Yes, I had the same idea before realizing that these two directives will
move away in a patch already sent for 3.18. So, as this material is
probably 3.19-ish, I kept them as they are and keep in mind to remove
them when I merge them with 3.18-rc1...

Here also, I didn't want to touch more because we need to remove the
arch/arm/mach-at91/Kconfig.non_dt file very soon (3.19) and I don't want
to change this file (or all the SoC files) before the chunks related to
these directives simply go away.

Tell me if it makes sense.
