If there are multiple ways of detecting the device, then
the driver should be compilable on any system that allows
either one.

At the very least, it should be restricted to CONFIG_HAS_IOMEM,
which is probably required for any of these, but not provided
on stuff like UML or s390.

Drivers that use of_* functions unconditionally need to
depend on CONFIG_OF.

Also, some of the xilinx drivers apparantly use DCR, which in turn is
only defined when you have CONFIG_PPC_DCR, and these
have so far only been used on powerpc. If other architectures
start using DCR (I hope that never happens), we will need a
global CONFIG_DCR option.
