I disagree. It looks ugly. If tinification means sprinkling more and
more of these conditionals all over the place, then it is going to be
a tough sell.

We decided to have MAC drivers select PTP for a reason. It is a
feature that people generally want to have. If those drivers bring in
22 KB timer support, then too bad. As I said before, timers are the
last thing I would remove.

Maybe there is a way to make this work in Kconfig land without messing
with the code?
