I did look into this and I would prefer to stay with the original
implementation of the defaults. Changing this into a Kconfig choice
makes this a bit more complex in the Kconfig. Additionally and even
more important (for my personal feeling), the original implementation
is more in line with the BUILD_TARGET implemenation directly below
this new implementation.

So if you don't object, I would like to send a new version with the
original implementation but with a "better" (more correct)
description in Kconfig.

What do you think?
