Frankly, I don't remember the history here. Did you look into the git
history to see, where this Kconfig option was introduced?

It could very well be the case, that this was introduced "by accident"
by including some Marvell code without taking it out. AFAIK, we are not
supporting any Armada 39x in mainline right now.
