This driver uses OF and OF_MDIO, and therefore need dependencies upon
them. Otherwise it can be enabled in configurations which will result
in build failures.

Note that this symbol cannot be selected by the user, only indirectly via the MDIO_BUS_MUX_GPIO symbol (in patch 3/3) which has the proper dependencies.

If we were to specify the dependencies in both places, we gain nothing other than duplication of information.

However, if you insist, I will of course add it here too.
