Subject[PATCH v9 24/27] dmaengine: dw-edma: Relax driver config settings
Since the DW PCIe RP/EP driver is about to be updated to register the DW
eDMA-based DMA-engine the drivers build modes must be synchronized.
Currently the DW PCIe RP/EP driver is always built as a builtin module.
Meanwhile the DW eDMA driver can be built as a loadable module. Thus in
the later case the kernel with DW PCIe controllers support will fail to be
linked due to lacking the DW eDMA probe/remove symbols. At the same time
forcibly selecting the DW eDMA driver from the DW PCIe RP/EP kconfig will
effectively eliminate the tristate type of the former driver fixing it to
just the builtin kernel module.

Seeing the DW eDMA engine isn't that often met built into the DW PCIe
Root-ports and End-points let's convert the DW eDMA driver config to being
more flexible instead of just forcibly selecting the DW eDMA kconfig. In
order to do that first the DW eDMA PCIe driver config should be converted
to being depended from the DW eDMA core config instead of selecting the
one. Second the DW eDMA probe and remove symbols should be referenced only
if they are reachable by the caller. Thus the user will be able to build
the DW eDMA core driver with any type, meanwhile the dependent code will
be either restricted to the same build type (e.g. DW eDMA PCIe driver if
DW eDMA driver is built as a loadable module) or just won't be able to use
the eDMA engine registration/de-registration functionality (e.g. DW PCIe
RP/EP driver if DW eDMA driver is built as a loadable module).
