But that discussion was about removing the check alltogether iirc.
This patch does not remove the !ARCH_MULTIPLATFORM check. It just
*moves* it from the sourcecode to the errata's Kconfig entry.

The intention was to hide the Kconfig option on multiplatform
kernels, since it's completely useless there after the N900
boardcode has been changed (PATCH 1/3).

I think you missed the part adding the !ARCH_MULTIPLATFORM
dependency in Kconfig for ARM_ERRATA_430973. I only removed
the check in the sourcecode, since it is no longer required
with the dependency being in Kconfig.

So I guess there are 3 options now:

1. Add !ARCH_MULTIPLATFORM dependency to Kconfig,
keep extra check in the sourcecode
2. Add !ARCH_MULTIPLATFORM dependency to Kconfig,
remove extra check in the sourcecode
3. Remove !ARCH_MULTIPLATFORM dependency alltogether

I will send an appropriate patch, if you tell me your preferred
option.
