armada is not a generic drm driver, but can only be used for armada-drm
and imx-drm. You can't just use it with any drm device, for that you need
a generic driver like -modesetting.

Just enable all the drivers you have for your hw, and it should work.
Hacking on drivers without knowing what they expect tends to not work so
well.
