Subject[PATCH] [v2, -net] cpsw/netcp: work around reverse cpts dependency
The dependency is reversed: cpsw and netcp call into cpts,
but cpts depends on the other two in Kconfig. This can lead
to cpts being a loadable module and its callers built-in:

drivers/net/ethernet/ti/cpsw.o: In function `cpsw_remove':
cpsw.c:(.text.cpsw_remove+0xd0): undefined reference to `cpts_release'
drivers/net/ethernet/ti/cpsw.o: In function `cpsw_rx_handler':
cpsw.c:(.text.cpsw_rx_handler+0x2dc): undefined reference to `cpts_rx_timestamp'
drivers/net/ethernet/ti/cpsw.o: In function `cpsw_tx_handler':
cpsw.c:(.text.cpsw_tx_handler+0x7c): undefined reference to `cpts_tx_timestamp'
drivers/net/ethernet/ti/cpsw.o: In function `cpsw_ndo_stop':

As a workaround, I'm introducing another Kconfig symbol to
control the compilation of cpts, while making the actual
module controlled by a silent symbol that is =y when necessary.

v1: Originally submitted on Dec 16, still needed for v4.10 and v4.11-rc2
v2: change the symbol names to keep existing defconfigs working
