Hi Robert,

Thanks for pointing this out, I thought that I had caught
all the missing dependencies ones after you pointed out
the AC97_BUS_NEW that I fixed in patch 14.

From what I can tell, commit b5aaaa666a85 ("ARM: pxa: add
Kconfig dependencies for ATAGS based boards"), the
PXA310/PXA320 DT support became dead code because
MACH_PXA3XX_DT only selects CPU_PXA300, so if it worked
before that commit, it now needs CONFIG_UNUSED_BOARD_FILES
and CONFIG_EXPERT as well as enabling one of the legacy
board files with the corresponding chip support.

If that's all you think is missing, I can add this
trivial patch as well and rework the series to not
drop code that depends on PXA310/PXA320:

--- a/arch/arm/mach-pxa/Kconfig
+++ b/arch/arm/mach-pxa/Kconfig
@@ -45,6 +45,8 @@ config MACH_PXA27X_DT
bool "Support PXA3xx platforms from device tree"
select CPU_PXA300
+ select CPU_PXA310
+ select CPU_PXA320
select PINCTRL
select PXA3xx
Can you have a look at the other patches to see if there
are more removed drivers or platform bits that are currently
dead code but are actually required?
