I meant the arch/arm one.

Right, I'm just thinking that for something like this it might not be
worth turning off the TWL4030 core support given that these sorts of
southbridgeish chips tend to be pretty key to the system.  It was just
an idle thought, anyway.

BTW, it'd also be really handy if you could remove the OMAP dependencies
from TWL4030_CORE - I know it currently needs them to actually be useful
at runtime but it'd mean that it's possible to build things like the
codec driver on other configs which helps when working on subsystems.
