The issue is that the dependencies for every single ethernet driver
have changed. Some dependencies have been dropped (f.e. NETDEV_10000
and some have been added (f.e. ETHERNET, NET_VENDOR_****)

So right now an automated (non-prompted, default to no on all new
options) run on an existing config results in all ethernet drivers
getting disabled because the new dependencies don't get enabled.

This wouldn't be so bad if it was just one or two drivers, but in
this case it's every single ethernet driver which will have and hit
this problem.
