I considered doing that. The benefit of keeping it is that it warns
about configs where the main driver is built but can never be used.
Still, you're right that its purpose is becoming less important. I had
planned to remove it when all the glue driver had been converted, but
in fact it could be removed at any time.

If the patches are done independently. There are likely to be some
context conflicts anyway.

That's a good idea. The Kconfig changes would have to be done
carefully to make sure that the dependency on USB_ARCH_HAS_EHCI still
applies to all the platform drivers.
Manjunath, would you like to send a patch to do this?
