Great stuff!

My main concern is that it's really confusing to have so many symbols
with slightly different scopes:

* SOC_SELECT_IMX1  HAVE_SOC_IMX1  ARCH_MX1  SOC_IMX1
* SOC_SELECT_IMX21 HAVE_SOC_IMX21 ARCH_MX2  SOC_IMX21

Are you sure that this is actually the minimum set that is required?

I assume that you have gone through all the uses of these symbols
to check that there is no silent breakage if you enable more than
one. The only ones that looks suspicious to me are
arch/arm/plat-mxc/include/mach/timex.h and
arch/arm/plat-mxc/include/mach/debug-macro.S. The first one
is probably harmless, because we don't really use the CLOCK_TICK_RATE
any more, the second one I can't tell.
