Nope. It just saves us having to drag in drivers/scsi/Config.in, which
would contain a number of unusable hardware-device options.

Copying the relevant generic portions of that config file into
arch/xeno/config.in is one option, or just include the existing SCSI
options file and ignore the obvious bad entries.
