Besides the remarks from Andy, this does seem like a weird default,
MATOM means that gcc is passed -march=atom nothing more and nothing
less. For a distro kernel which may e.g. set
CONFIG_GENERIC_CPU we still want this enabled. But as said it is
brought in by CONFIG_X86_INTEL_LPSS when that is set.

Thinking more about this I think it might be best to just do this
instead, replacing patch 2 + 4 of this set:

This just folds the enabling of the pmc_atom code into the same
Kconfig option as the one used the the LPSS code, so this actually
simplify things; while at the same time making it possible to
not build the pmc_atom code by unselecting the CONFIG_X86_INTEL_LPSS
option.

Regards,

Hans
