ah, quite right, i missed that. that's because the fusion Kconfig
file starts with:

menu "Fusion MPT device support"

config FUSION
bool
default n

config FUSION_SPI
tristate "Fusion MPT ScsiHost drivers for SPI"
depends on PCI && SCSI <-- not dependent on FUSION
select FUSION
select SCSI_SPI_ATTRS
...

for now, then, i'm just going to remove the FUSION menu change from
the upcoming patch and decide what to do about it later. as i
mentioned, i wanted this first patch to restructure entries that
required nothing more than the obvious rewrite. upcoming patch ...
uh, upcoming shortly.
