Subject: Re: [PATCH] net: phy: mdio-sun4i: don't select REGULATOR

From: Beniamino Galvani <>
Date: Sat,  6 Sep 2014 00:28:23 +0200

> The mdio-sun4i driver automatically selects REGULATOR and
> REGULATOR_FIXED_VOLTAGE because it uses the regulator API. But a

> circular Kconfig dependencies, especially when other drivers depend on
> the selected symbol.
> Since the regulator API functions are replaced with no-ops when
> REGULATOR is disabled, the driver can be built successfully even
> without regulator support and so those 'select' dependencies can be
> safely dropped.
