Fair enough. My thought was you still wanted to turn on all the express drivers. Versatile is specially handled in the kernel config logic so I thought you were doing the same. All is good.

The fix is actually this. With unified kernel the versatile config
file (highbank too) don't actually get used at all and are due to be
removed. I didn't want to do that until I knew we were good to go.
-kernel-$(VERSION)-armv7l.config: /dev/null temp-armv7l-versatile
+kernel-$(VERSION)-armv7l.config: /dev/null temp-armv7
I managed to miss this in the move. Good catch to give me the general
direction to look :)
