Is it a big ask? No, is it a reasonable request? No.

These are arm devices so please come to the arm list/maintainers with
these requests?

Why do they need to be built in? They don't. One is a SDHCI driver and
the other is an ethernet PHY, both are dealt with in initrd just fine
and have no reason to be built in, we deal with these just fine across
100s of other devices in initrd.

Dusty you should know this process by now!
