In general I prefer to not use a default but this is the only GPU driver for
ARCH_QCOM and I think its safe to stay that 99% of ARCH_QCOM users would select
this module and those that wouldn't will omit DRM entirely.
I feel it is net negative if we dropped the default but then had to turn around
and enable it in every defconfig.
