I'd argue that the "(CONFIG_ARCH_MXC) || defined(CONFIG_SOC_IMX28)"
is definitely wrong, because if we ever get another ARM platform
that uses this driver, it may or may not work depending on whether
the ARCH_MXC is also set, and that is not a helpful behavior.

Better make it simply CONFIG_ARM to keep the behavior independent
of config options. It won't change anything for now but any future
platform will probably work independent of configuration or would
require a bugfix at all.
