Subject[PATCH 3/3] soc: ixp4xx: Hide auto-selected drivers
The 2 IXP4xx SOC drivers qmgr and npe are selected automatically when
needed so they do not need to be presented to the user.

Furthermore these helper drivers are specific to the IXP4xx arch so
hide them completely on other architectures so as to not clutter the
config file.

Note: Ultimately all I want is that non-ixp4xx users are not asked
about IXP4XX_QMGR and IXP4XX_NPE. If there is another preferred option
to achieve the same, that would work with me too, just let me know.
