I think the best solution is

- make GENERIC_PHY a silent option
- change PHY_RCAR_GEN2 to use 'select' instead of 'depends on', so
it will still work when all other phy drivers are disabled
- change the non-phy drivers that select GENERIC_PHY to either
use 'depends on' or no explicit dependency in case they are
still functional without the API. Note that
drivers/pinctrl/pinctrl-tegra-xusb.c is a phy provider as well,
not a consumer, despite being outside of drivers/phy.
