These options have dependencies. I think it would better to implement
a top-level configuration question called something like
PERSISTENT_MEMORY_ALL that goes and selects all the bus providers and
infrastructure and lets other defaults follow along. For example,
CONFIG_DEV_DAX could grow a "default LIBNVDIMM" and then
CONFIG_DEV_DAX_PMEM would default on as well. If
CONFIG_PERSISTENT_MEMORY_ALL selected all the bus providers and
ZONE_DEVICE then the Kconfig system could prompt you to where the
dependencies are not satisfied.
