If we agree, I can send the following three patches.


[1] Add "depends on HAS_IOMEM"
to all drivers selecting MFD_SYSCON
(Unmet dependencies will be fixed by this)

[2] For consistency, convert existing "depends on MFD_SYSCON"
to "select MFD_SYSCON" + "depends on HAS_IOMEM"

[3] Change MFD_SYSCON to user-unconfigurable option.
But, for COMPILE_TEST, allow users to enable it independently.
Like follows:

config MFD_SYSCON
bool "System Controller Register R/W Based on Regmap" if COMPILE_TEST
select REGMAP_MMIO
help
Select this option to enable accessing system control registers
via regmap.


Is this OK?
