That seems fine, although I'm less certain about what to do for the
SRAM situation. Other drivers that use SUNXI_SRAM have a Kconfig select
on it (that Cedrus lacks). Provided that the SRAM driver builds fine
for non-sunxi configs, bringing-in that select would remove the need
for dummy functions and also ensure that the actual implementation is
always used on sunxi. Otherwise, there'd be a risk of having the dummy
functions used (if the SRAM driver is not explicitly selected in the
config), causing a hang when accessing the VPU.

What do you think?

Cheers,

Paul
