I agree that the change could cause confusion, I'm not sure though if
adding something to the "help" text is a good mitigation. Users won't see
the text unless they can select the option, which requires
CONFIG_USB_XHCI_PLATFORM to be enabled. Also the dependencies are specified
nearby (and displayed), so it seems similar to a code comment on something
that the code evidently does (e.g. "initialize foobar with 0").

On a different note: I'm considering to break the CONFIG_USB_XHCI_PLATFORM
related patches out of the onboard_usb_hub series, since the driver
doesn't any longer depend on xhci_plat. In that sense I'm also open
to abandon those patches, if they aren't considered an improvement on
their own.
