Subject: Re: [PATCH] drm/sti: Depend on OF rather than selecting it

> Commit cc6b741c6f63 ("drm: sti: remove useless fields from vtg
> structure") reworked some code inside of this driver and made it select
> CONFIG_OF. This results in the entire OF layer being enabled when
> building an allmodconfig on ia64. OF on ia64 is completely unsupported
> so this isn't a great state of affairs.

> The 0day robot noticed a link-time failure on ia64 caused by
> using of_node_to_nid() in an otherwise unrelated driver. The
> generic fallback for of_node_to_nid() only exists when:
>
>         defined(CONFIG_OF) && defined(CONFIG_NUMA) == false
>
> Since CONFIG_NUMA is usually selected for IA64 we get the link failure.
> Fix this by making the driver depend on OF rather than selecting it,
> odds are that was the original intent.
