That's, by the way, not true.

User has no such item even visible until enable CONFIG_EXPERT.

Heikki sent an answer to you (and to the list, but by some reason it's

No, this is what we try avoiding, thus it will not happen.

If user selects CONFIG_SERIAL_8250_PCI, the CONFIG_SERIAL_8250_LPSS will
be selected as well since it has same dependencies.
