I was thinking of this pattern:

config SOUNDWIRE
	bool "SoundWire support"

if SOUNDWIRE

config SOUNDWIRE_INTEL
	tristate "SoundWire for Intel"
	select SOUNDWIRE_BUS

config SOUNDWIRE_XYZ_ARM64
	tristate "SoundWire for XYZ platform"
	select SOUNDWIRE_BUS

config SOUNDWIRE_BUS
	tristate

endif

One could argue that SOUNDWIRE could select SOUNDWIRE_BUS directly, or 
merge the two, but then you could have a configuration where the bus is 
included with no actual users. Not to mention that the intent of the 
top-level selector is typically to have no impact on compilation as 
recommended by Linus.
