SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/6] coresight: remove CORESIGHT_LINKS_AND_SINKS dependencies and selections

I'm good with this patch but now the help text for CORESIGHT_LINKS_AND_SINKS no
longer match what the config does. I see two ways to fix this:

1) Rework the help text.

2) Rework CORESIGHT_LINKS_AND_SINKS to be CORESIGHT_FUNNEL and move
coresight-replicator.o under CORESIGHT_DYNAMIC_REPLICATOR in the Makefile. I
really liked your idea of making the replicator driver intelligent enough to
deal with both DT and platform declaration, which merges two driver into one.

I'm obviously favouring the second option but recognise it doesn't have to be
part of this patchet. So for this set please rework the help text for
CORESIGHT_LINKS_AND_SINKS. Once we've dealt with this topic we can refactor the
replicator driver.

Thanks,
Mathieu
