Thanks for verifying this!

We typically don't use the CONFIG_ARCH_* to enable user selectable
config options, even if they serve a critical role in the system.

So minimum change would be to add CONFIG_MAILBOX to the qcom_defconfig
(and multi_v7_defconfig I presume). The fuller solution would be to add
qcom,msm8974-apcs-kpss-global (.data is 8) to the qcom-apcs-ipc-mailbox
list of compatibles and replace the syscon currently used, and then
enable these in the defconfigs.
