General policy is that you should not 'select' a symbol that is
also user-visible, as that tends to cause dependency loops and
other problems when something is enabled without the user being
aware of that.

Ideally we should remove the 'select TI_CPPI41' here as well, but
what we could do instead is to make that a silent symbol and remove
the prompt so it always gets enabled implicitly when USB_TI_CPPI41_DMA
and DMADEVICES are both enabled.
