I'm just a little confused because under arch/arm/mach-vexpress/ there is no A15 tile? On the virtualopensystems.com git (which you quote above) you had to explicitly enable the board and it would show up in the .config as CONFIG_ARCH_VEXPRESS_CA15X4. Is that not the case anymore in your kernel tree?
