Since IP_NF_CONNTRACK_NETLINK is the one creating the dependency,
something like this should work:

config IP_NF_CONNTRACK_NETLINK
depends on IP_NF_CONNTRACK && NETFILTER_NETLINK
depends on IP_NF_CONNTRACK!=y || NETFILTER_NETLINK!=m
IOW ct_nl depends on (ct && nl) unless (ct=y && nl=m).

bye, Roman
