 See the rest of the thread too  :-)

 Would the kernel team be actually ok with building both a -mx51 *and* a
 -mx53 in the future?  I suspect it would be too heavy.  In theory
 CONFIG_ARM_PATCH_PHYS_VIRT should work; it might be broken, but it's
 clearly the way forward.

 Anticipating support for mx53, I would recommend you go for -mx5; I'd
 hope there is sufficient benefits in having a single kernel image that
 even if this might be broken right now, it would be better to fix it
 rather than go for two kernels just because of this single issue.
