You are saying that the I2C and SPI interface to the Madera codec
depends on pin control.

It does not.

You can most certainly talk I2C and SPI to the coded without any
pin control. Probably the MFD driver can come up without it.

If what you want is unconditional pin control enabled for this circuit,
then have MFD_MADERA select PINCTRL.

Including the pin controller. You just confirmed what I said: the
I2C and SPI interfaces do not require pin control to talk to the
chip.

You still have the dependencies wrong.
