I still think it's best not to turn it on automatically. The convention
for device drivers is to make them all optional.
What you can do however is to add
depends on ARCH_BCM_IPROC || COMPILE_TEST
to the driver to do the reverse and not let the driver be turned on
unless IPROC is selected or you are just testing the build.
A lot of distros just turn on all drivers, so this way you wouldn't
accidentally enable it for a kernel that doesn't support IPROC.
