If the controller requires PHY for it to be functional, it is okay to make the
controller depend on PHY IMHO. We want to try and minimize the usage of
'select' wherever possible or else 'select' is the most intuitive way. The
other option is just to leave the 'depends on' and let the user select PHY.
