Not really, I'm afraid.

My proposed change affects users of non-embedded systems, or more
generally everyone not on ARCH_MMP. I want to make their life easier by
hiding options which are not relevant to them. I have sent several
dozen of such patches in the past for various drivers, see for example
the latest ones:
  http://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=441fb7684782be3553c67dc04defcf304b999bba
  http://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=c03842d89b769db44be5cb0b1ebb384ccfa25f7f
  http://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=84c3a8f6eadb2bedfba10f62da0328d8533c8f25
Also note that the MMC subsystem already has examples of this, check
MMC_OMAP_HS, MMC_SDHCI_MSM, MMC_SDHI, MMC_DW and MMC_SH_MMCIF in
drivers/mmc/host/Kconfig. I'm just doing more of the same, nothing new.

The change you want, OTOH, would affect exclusively the ARCH_MMP users
(of which I am not.) It is essentially unrelated with what I was
originally talking about, except for the fact that it touches the same
Kconfig entries. I have no idea if your proposal is a good idea, I am
not dealing with embedded systems, and I have no idea who are the
maintainers of the affected SOCs. This is simply not my area.

So basically you are rejecting my proposal without a reason, and then
you ask me to do an unrelated work instead. This is not fair, sorry.

Don't get me wrong, I'm always ready to do some more work than I
originally intended if that's what it takes to get my patches merged. I
value code review and I welcome constructive criticism. But this time
your request is not reasonable.
