This is useful for arm (possibly other arches too) where we want to have
a GENERIC kernel that only include files for the different SoC. Since
multiple SoCs/Board needs the same device we would need to do either :
- Include the device in a generic file
- Include the device in each file that really needs it
Option 1 works but if someone wants to create a specific kernel config
(which isn't uncommon for embedded system), he will need to add a lots
of nodevice to it.
Option 2 also works but produce a lots of warnings.
