== SRU Justification ==
The mvpp2 is a driver for network controllers(s) in Marvell SOCs,
particularly Armada 8040.

However this driver was neither enabled as a module or a built-in for
Disco arm64.

== Fix ==
Just like what we did for armhf, set CONFIG_MVPP2 to "m" for arm64 can
solve this problem.

Corresponding configs like CONFIG_ARCH_MVEBU and CONFIG_ARCH_MULTI_V7
need to be enabled as well to meet the dependency requirement.

explicitly to avoid interactive dialogues when building the kernel.

== Test ==
A test kernel for Disco ARM64 could be found here:

User has confirmed that the patched kernel can fix this missing driver

== Regression Potential ==
Low, this patch just make this driver to be built as a module,
and we already have this enabled for armhf.
