It should be done like ppc64, that is MULTIPLATFORM can be built with an
aribtrary "set" of platforms. In fact, I think the merged arch should
trash if possible all "exclusive" CONFIG_MYBOARD stuff, but only ever do
what ppc64 does, that is any combination of platforms for the same CPU
family can be built at the same time.
