The question is which option should depend on MMU? Making 
to depend on MMU doesn't solve this case. It only gives following 
warning with the
mentioned .config:
ARM_SMMU) selects ARM_DMA_USE_IOMMU which has unmet direct dependencies 

IMHO the best solution will be to either make the whole IOMMU subsystem 
to depend
on MMU or alternatively, add this dependency to all IOMMU drivers which 
can be
enabled by COMPILE_TEST option (here the issue is caused by 
otherwise cannot be enabled when no-mmu systems are selected).
