Do we really need two different include/linux .h files for this bus
subsystem?  Can we merge them both together?

Wait, what?  Why are you messing with the dependancies now?  And never
do a select if at all possible, do a 'depends on' instead.

And why not UML?  What about other arches, why are you now restricting
it?  That's an odd change to be doing here in a "move this out of
staging" patch...
