Actually you can remove the I2C_HID dependency entirely (and not add one
for USB_HID). In the Kconfig, the modules are already guarded by a
"if HID", and there is nothing transport specific in hid-asus as far as
I can tell.

Note: we should also probably clean up the Kconfig once again and remove
all the "depends on HID" for those that are guarded by the if statement.
