Understatement of the century.

pseries should be just pseries, and nothing else.

ppc64_defconfig *should* be the primary config. And similarly ppc64le
when building little endian.

The reason being that 'make defconfig' will give you one of those
depending on uname (when building native).

I think the only thing disqualifying it from that role at the moment is
that it builds 4K pages.

But I think we should just change that. We can add ppc64_4K_defconfig
for anyone who wants it (G5 users mainly I would guess).

We'd also need to make sure ppc64/ppc64le have all the modern options
