We had build issues in past by selecting major driver subsystems
in Kconfig.socs

I suggest to select SPI_SIFIVE from Kconfig.socs and other
platform independent options should go in defconfig and
rv32_defconfig.

The general rule of thumb is to force select only required
drivers from Kconfig.socs.
