Yes, I agree.

IIRC, the patch series which added this support started with naming it
to CRYPTO_DEV_SP but somewhere during review process we discussed that
since the module name is ccp.ko hence we kept the config with same name.
We can submit a follow-up patch to correct it to avoid any further
confusion.

The first set of SEV patches accepted in upstream was using select
instead of depends on. I used select mainly to ensure that all the
drivers needed to run SEV is either builtin or module.  A follow up
patch was submitted by Paolo to use 'depends on' so that we don't create
a circular dependency - I agree with that patch.

I think depends should look like this:

config KVM_AMD_SEV
    def_bool y
    bool "AMD Secure Encrypted Virtualization (SEV) support"
    depends KVM_AMD && X86_64
    depends CRYPTO_DEV_SP_PSP && !(KVM_AMD=y && CRYPTO_DEV_CCP_DD=m)


Like you said,  the KVM_AMD_SEV should depends only on
"CRYPTO_DEV_SP_PSP".  But when SEV support is enabled in KVM, we need a
CCP driver at the runtime, hence we should ensure that if user selects
KVM_AMD=y then CCP driver is also builtin otherwise she will not get SEV
feature.

Thanks for ping, sorry I was meaning to reply to this it but somehow got
dropped. Can you please try above recommendation and see if its builds
and runs?
