Kernel test bot seems found an issue with dependencies, because selection
of P2SB is not enough.

There are two solutions that I can see now:
1) move P2SB out of X86_PLATFORM_DEVICES section (like PMC_ATOM);
2) add 'depends on X86_PLATFORM_DEVICES' to the affected drivers.

I think the first solution cleaner, because it would be strange to have
the dependency on the drivers that quite unlikely be on server platforms
(e.g. EDAC).

In long term perhaps something like drivers/platform/x86/lib which is for
platform libraries or so and independent on X86_PLATFORM_DEVICES?

I will send a fix soon as per 1) above, feel free to comment here or there.

With Best Regards,
Andy Shevchenko
