I2C_ALGOBIT does exist, but depends on a false value if I2C_HELPER_AUTO
is set. Yes, in this case it does not matter, there won't be any
unresolved symbols during link, but Kconfig has no way to find out what
are hard dependencies and what are tricks to improve the user
experience.

Unfortunatelly, this fix does not help. Symbol properties are merged
together, so this just first defines three tristate symbols and later
makes them depend on !I2C_HELPER_AUTO :-(.
