Well, it's defined in common/Kconfig, but we just set the value here.
This scheme is used all over the place already, check SYS_CLK_FREQ,

So I don't think it's a good idea to define those platform specific
default values at the place of their original definition.
Yes, we are doing this alot at the moment (especially for sunxi, and
mostly only for sunxi), but I think this is starting to get out of hands
now. If this is setting an example, we would clutter those platform
specific settings all over the various subsystems.

Actually I started some patches to move those "default xxx if
ARCH_SUNXI" lines to arch/arm/mach-sunxi, so they are all in one place.

So I think Jonas' patch is the right thing to do - unless it's really
generic, so if we would drop the "if ARCH_SUNXI" clause (which would
make some sense for this particular setting).
