Sorry but we need to apply some assumption, i.e. to me the CONFIG_ANDROID
indicates that a kernel runs on the Android wise device. When you enable
this option on you specific box it is supposed that some Android related
code are activated also on your device which may lead to some side effect.

Will it work for you?
