Solution from 2/2 seems pretty obvious.

1) Enabling SSB_PCICORE_HOSTMODE compiles code that requires
non-exported symbols. Requiring "SSB = y" seems pretty obvious.
2) As pointed in another e-mail bcma has pretty identical solution
that seems to be working well, see commit 79ca239a68f8f ("bcma:
Prevent build of PCI host features in module").

That's just my opinion though, I shared since you asked.

If you prefer to queue that for 4.18, I'm OK. After all:
1) This problem affects MIPS arch only
2) It can be fixed by not selecting BCMA_DRIVER_PCI_HOSTMODE for SSB = m
