This Kconfig symbol will always be set to its default (32). So why
bother with a Kconfig symbol. Can't you use, say, a preprocessor define
directly?

Ditto.

Ditto.

If FSL_QMAN is set to 'm' this should generate three modules. Is three
modules what you want? (Just to be safe: cross compiling ran into
problems, even for PPC64, probably because of silliness on my side. So I
couldn't check this. And I trust make's results more than I trust my
ability to parse Makefiles.)
 
Besides, there's no MODULE_LICENSE() in any of their source files. So,
whether you create one or three modules, loading a module will trigger a
warning and taint the kernel.

qman.o is built if FSL_QMAN_CONFIG is set. FSL_QMAN_CONFIG is a bool
symbol. The net effect is that MODULE_DEVICE_TABLE is preprocessed away.

As of v4.2-rc1 you can use builtin_platform_driver() for built-in only
code.

Thanks,
