It does declared the dependency already. And I plan to move it under the
SPI-NOR submenu too.

But as I stated in the cover letter (I'm not sure if it made it through
to all the cross-posted ML's):


  "Note that without the new CONFIG_MTD_SPI_NOR symbol in your
  defconfig, Kconfig will automatically drop M25P80 for you."

So declaring the dependency is half the battle, but you still have to
include your dependencies in your defconfig.
