Yes, it seems tools select you based on their heuristics because you
made changes to that file.

Earlier versions of the onboard_usb_hub series [1] which had a dependency
involving USB_XHCI_PLATFORM had an issue with invalid (rand)configs
that was related with the 'selects'.

The series doesn't depend on USB_XHCI_PLATFORM any longer, hence the
original issue doesn't exist anymore, however it might re-surface in
the future.

Personally I have no vested interest at this point in getting the
config changes landed, I just wanted to make clear what the status
is (split off from the series, no future versions unless someone
requests them), rather than abandoning them silently.
