If I change it to tristate, it is still impossible to choose =m for it
unless I revert your earlier commit forcing it to be built in.

x86/config: Select MSIC MFD driver on Intel Medfield platform

On Intel Medfield platform we use MSIC MFD driver to create
necessary platform devices so it is essential to have the driver
compiled into the kernel.

If I revert that, then it is possible to choose =m and it compiles.
