This is on linux-next.

It must be with BACKLIGHT_CLASS_DEVICE=m and
DRM_PANEL_RAYDIUM_RM68200=y, meaning that it should
be sufficient to do

depends on BACKLIGHT_CLASS_DEVICE || BACKLIGHT_CLASS_DEVICE=n

to force DRM_PANEL_RAYDIUM_RM68200 to be a loadable module
whenever BACKLIGHT_CLASS_DEVICE=m. For the patch, I looked at
what the other drivers in the same directory do and followed their
example.

I see three options here:

1. update my patch changelog with the explanation I wrote here but leave it
untouched
2. use the more elaborate dependency (after testing) but not change the
others
3. change all panel drivers with a backlight dependency the same way,
possibly with a helper symbol like

config BACKLIGHT_CLASS_DEVICE_OPTIONAL
tristate
default m if BACKLIGHT_CLASS_DEVICE=m
default y
