There's a problem with this patch.

CONFIG_NET_DSA_SMSC_LAN9303 is not user-selectable, but it is selected
The point is that config options that aren't user-selectable but are
automatically selected shouldn't have dependencies. AFAIK, the
dependencies should be transferred to the user-facing options
(_I2C and _MDIO).

What happens is that if you make CONFIG_VLAN_8021Q a module, you get
this warning:

WARNING: unmet direct dependencies detected for NET_DSA_SMSC_LAN9303
  Depends on [m]: NETDEVICES [=y] && NET_DSA [=y] && (VLAN_8021Q [=m] || VLAN_8021Q [=m]=n)
  Selected by [y]:
  - NET_DSA_SMSC_LAN9303_I2C [=y] && NETDEVICES [=y] && NET_DSA [=y] && I2C [=y]
  - NET_DSA_SMSC_LAN9303_MDIO [=y] && NETDEVICES [=y] && NET_DSA [=y]

The point of the dependency was to force the LAN9303 driver as a module
if 8021Q is a module, but this doesn't happen because the dependency
isn't where it should be.
