Sorry, this was the result of a wrong patch reordering. In my initial
patch set I ended up with 6xx == CLASSIC32 and PPC_MULTIPLATFORM=y,
but then I backed out a few patches in the middle.

I guess the best is to do another patch that moves PPC_EMBEDDED6xx into
PPC_MULTIPLATFORM again and leaves this one as it is.
Alternatively, we could kill CONFIG_CLASSIC32 entirely as it is used
only in a few places. Especially after I resubmit my CPU type selection
patch again, which allows you do it in a more fine grained way.

Which systems in particular should allow CONFIG_TAU? Is there a more
specific dependency than (6xx && !(82xx || 83xx || 86xx || 52xx))?
