I'm just moving options around I didn't add or remove any. That applies
to most of your comments.

There is a patch removing it that is part of another series. IT will be
applied before this patch.

Probably not, it is there because of the phy fixups. Anyway, it is being
removed by another series as we don't like to carry phy fixups.

It is not different from what is done for ARCH_EXYNOS4 which is also
mutliplatform (and the more annoyingly ARMv7). I propose to restrict
that to SOC_AT91RM9200 so that it only affects ARMv4 (and I guess not
many people care about those now). I'm not sure it is a good idea to
move it to clokevents because of how it is handled in arch/arm/Kconfig.

I'll add a patch on top of that to further cleanup the unnecessary
options you pointed and moving COMMON_CLK_AT91 to driver/clk.
