Nop, i used make kernel_menuconfig to deselect HW_RANDOM_BCM63XX and HW_RANDOM.
As you can see in the Kconfig, HW_RANDOM_BCM63XX depends on BCM63XX
so, if it is not selected, sends the aforementioned error. However
SPI_BCM63XX and SPI_BCM63XX_HSSPI can be deselected and the
compilation finishes normally.


P.S.: maybe will be better to forget this patch and leave the things
as they are because the time you are spending don't justify the
"benefits", and could lead to problems in the future.
