Subject: [PATCH] drm/bridge: sil_sii8620: depend on INPUT instead of selecting it.

commit d6abe6df706c66d803e6dd4fe98c1b6b7f125a56 (drm/bridge:
sil_sii8620: do not have a dependency of RC_CORE) added a dependency on
INPUT. However, this causes problems with other drivers, in particular
an input driver that depends on MFD_INTEL_LPSS_PCI (to be added in a
future commit):

  drivers/clk/Kconfig:9:error: recursive dependency detected!
  drivers/clk/Kconfig:9:        symbol COMMON_CLK is selected by MFD_INTEL_LPSS
  drivers/mfd/Kconfig:566:      symbol MFD_INTEL_LPSS is selected by MFD_INTEL_LPSS_PCI
  drivers/mfd/Kconfig:580:      symbol MFD_INTEL_LPSS_PCI is implied by KEYBOARD_APPLESPI
  drivers/input/keyboard/Kconfig:73:    symbol KEYBOARD_APPLESPI depends on INPUT
  drivers/input/Kconfig:8:      symbol INPUT is selected by DRM_SIL_SII8620
  drivers/gpu/drm/bridge/Kconfig:83:    symbol DRM_SIL_SII8620 depends on DRM_BRIDGE
  drivers/gpu/drm/bridge/Kconfig:1:     symbol DRM_BRIDGE is selected by DRM_PL111
  drivers/gpu/drm/pl111/Kconfig:1:      symbol DRM_PL111 depends on COMMON_CLK

According to the docs, select should only be used for non-visible
symbols. Furthermore almost all other references to INPUT throughout the
kernel config are depends, not selects. Hence this change.
