Ugh, actually adding

depends on USB_ONBOARD_HUB || !USB_ONBOARD_HUB

to CONFIG_USB does not work. The problem is that USB_ONBOARD_HUB depends on
CONFIG_USB (not through an explicit dependency, but the 'misc' directory it
resides in is only included when CONFIG_USB=y/m), so the above rule would
introduce a circular dependency.

Unless there is some other way to specify "don't allow building
USB_ONBOARD_HUB as a module, unless USB is a module" I fear USB_ONBOARD_HUB
must be bool, which isn't really great :(
