Enabling multiple SOC types in kernel configuration.

Hi,

 

Does enabling different CPU_SOC types in the kernel configuration safe? For undisclosed reasons we have all CPU_SOC types enabled and we are only using the IMX6SX.

 

CONFIG_SOC_IMX53=y
CONFIG_SOC_IMX6=y
CONFIG_SOC_IMX6Q=y
CONFIG_SOC_IMX6SL=y
CONFIG_SOC_IMX6SX=y
CONFIG_SOC_IMX6UL=y
CONFIG_SOC_IMX7=y
CONFIG_SOC_IMX7D=y
CONFIG_SOC_VF610=y

 

What effect does it have when many SOC types are enabled? Does it make the kernel image bigger? Will the kernel image work on the other SOC type without changes?
