Yes, I did. With PCI config set to disable mlx5 drivers are not built. 
Only the following: 
/build/drivers/net/Ethernet/mellanox/mlxsw/mlxsw_core.ko
/build/drivers/net/Ethernet/mellanox /mlxsw/mlxsw_i2c.ko
/build/drivers/net/Ethernet/mellanox /mlxsw/mlxsw_minimal.ko

While with both options on all drivers are built inc mlx5.

No changelog, I've started with v1.
