All of these are enabled as =y. I don't think all of them are critical for
booting the system up to a rootfs. Can you please switch over any non-critical
drivers to =m?

Okay, let's check them one by one.

- CONFIG_SPI_IMX=y

  @Fabio, do you have a critical use case for this to be 'y'?  Or can we
  change this to 'm'?

- CONFIG_RTC_DRV_SNVS=y

  @Abel, I guess this can be 'm'? Or you have a good reason for this to
  be 'y'?

- CONFIG_PINCTRL_IMX8MM=y, CONFIG_CLK_IMX8MM=y

  @Olof, I think we shouldn't have problem to have pinctrl and clock
  driver to be 'y', as they are pretty fundamental for a platform
  support.

- CONFIG_GPIO_MAX732X=y

  @Olof, this is essentially a GPIO controller, just like
  CONFIG_GPIO_PCA953X=y currently sitting in defconfig.

- CONFIG_I2C_IMX_LPI2C=y

  @Olof, this is a driver for I2C bus controller which is used for many
   I2C devices, and above GPIO expander is one example.  So we would
   treat it as fundamental one.

- CONFIG_MFD_ROHM_BD718XX=y, CONFIG_REGULATOR_BD718XX=y

  @Leonard, are they critical for booting imx8mm-evk board up? Or can
  they be installed as module after system is up?

- CONFIG_NVMEM_IMX_OCOTP=y

  @Olof, this is the driver for fuse access on i.MX platform.  Drivers
  like cpufreq will need to access fuse for cpu grade data.  So we would
  take this driver as fundamental infrastructural.

Yes, we can change it to be a module.

This is the PMIC used on imx8mm-evk and also the purism devkit. Since 
it's used for main chip power "y" makes sense but boards can boot 
without it and I can't think of a corner case where we could fail to 
reach rootfs because of no PMIC driver.

Looking through arm64 defconfig other PMIC regulators seem to be "y"

 > - CONFIG_I2C_IMX_LPI2C=y

Other I2C/GPIO drivers are "y" but again can't point to anything 
specific that would fail.

Other than thermal and speed grading fuses also contain MAC address on 
imx chips. Since FEC (imx ethernet controller) is "y" for easy netboots 
it makes a lot of sense to keep this "y" as well.

These are all relatively small drivers. I don't think that RTC drivers 
are worth excluding either.

Okay.

I understand that the rootfs in Olof's context might be ramdisk, and
missing GPIO driver shouldn't be a problem.  However, I really would
like build a kernel image out of defconfig that can run into rootfs on
SD/MMC or NFS, which would be much more useful.  In that case, drivers
like GPIO should be required.

Agreed.

I don't think that is a good argument.  The need of being 'y' is based
on necessity rather than driver size.  arm-soc folks are maintaining
one single defconfig for all arm64 platforms. There could be hundreds
of such small drivers to be 'y' for no good reason.

Indeed, some boards might use i2c gpio expanders to reset SD/MCC or 
ethernet phys; tracking down exactly which i2c gpio expanders are used 
in this way in order to fix boot issues wouldn't be fun.

I updated the tag with CONFIG_SPI_IMX and CONFIG_RTC_DRV_SNVS being
changed to 'm'.  Please consider to pull, thanks.
