Good point, but no. This is intentional and follows the Kconfig pattern 
pattern described by Takashi at https://lkml.org/lkml/2017/11/17/47

yes, this SOUNDWIRE is overkill for now, but let's assume there is a 
second non-intel implementation (which I understand as very likely given 
all the threads on ARM64 support). In that case you'd really want a 
top-level selector option that has no actual compilation impact - not 
used in any Makefile or code - but enables the sub-options and let 
users/distros select the platforms they care about.

SOUNDWIRE_BUS is really the lowest-common denominator that will be used 
by all drivers at the end.

yes, that was the intent.
