I'd prefer not to switch s390 to use drivers/Kconfig unless someone
volunteers to clean up all included Kconfig files by adding proper
'depends on PCI' etc. flags. Otherwise too many broken options are
offered.

Yes, the reason is that some other options depend on them. We added the
PCMCIA option to arch/s390/Kconfig to stop kbuild from asking about
some drivers that won't work anyway.

E.g. drivers/scsi/pcmcia starts with

menu "PCMCIA SCSI adapter support"
depends on SCSI!=n && PCMCIA!=n && MODULES

which evaluate to true if the PCMCIA option is not known. Changing
that to

menu "PCMCIA SCSI adapter support"
depends on SCSI && PCMCIA && MODULES

solves this in a different way, but I'm not 100% sure if it still has
the same meaning.
