Hmm, I was puzzled by SH configuration.

SH decides CPU bit by ARCH environment, not by defconfig.

config SUPERH32
        def_bool ARCH = "sh"



make ARCH=sh defconfig
configures for cayman_defconfig, with CONFIG_SUPERH32

make ARCH=sh64 defconfig
configures for cayman_defconfig, with CONFIG_SUPERH64


shx3_defconfig is never used.
