Well, the situation we have on ARM is rather optimal - when the
rest of the configuration supports PCI, PCI is made visible. When
there's no hardware support for PCI, PCI is hidden. When PCI is
mandatory, PCI is selected and mostly always hidden.

It seems that with this consolidation, we lose that - we end up
with PCI being visible for every ARM config, not only those where
PCI is "impossible" but also for those where PCI is forcefully
selected.

That said, offering PCI for platforms that do not have any possibility
of PCI hardware shouldn't cause any compile issues, and would increase
build coverage - but I'd say it wouldn't _usefully_ increase build
coverage.
