On today's linux-next:

drivers/net/ethernet/broadcom/bnxt/bnxt_vfr.o: In function `bnxt_dl_register':
bnxt_vfr.c:(.text+0x1440): undefined reference to `devlink_alloc'
bnxt_vfr.c:(.text+0x14c0): undefined reference to `devlink_register'
bnxt_vfr.c:(.text+0x14e0): undefined reference to `devlink_free'
drivers/net/ethernet/broadcom/bnxt/bnxt_vfr.o: In function `bnxt_dl_unregister':
bnxt_vfr.c:(.text+0x1534): undefined reference to `devlink_unregister'
bnxt_vfr.c:(.text+0x153c): undefined reference to `devlink_free'

I think you are just missing a "depends on MAY_USE_DEVLINK"
in INFINIBAND_BNXT_RE, which uses 'select BNXT'.

This is a tricky corner case for Kconfig, where the MAY_USE_DEVLINK
dependency is silently ignored for BNXT as long as MAY_USE_DEVLINK
is not "=n".
