This case is a little bit tricky than usual, with PCH_PTP selected, the valid 
config would be either "PTP_1588_CLOCK_PCH=PCH_GBE=m" or 
"PTP_1588_CLOCK_PCH=PCH_GBE=y", and PTP_1588_CLOCK_PCH depends on PCH_GBE.

So are you ok with this:
+	depends on PTP_1588_CLOCK_PCH && (PCH_GBE=m || PTP_1588_CLOCK_PCH=y)

or simply like:

Fix build error caused by broken PCH_PTP module dependency.
The .config is:
         CONFIG_PCH_GBE=y
         CONFIG_PCH_PTP=y
         CONFIG_PTP_1588_CLOCK=m

The build error:
