I see two options for that:

- Add
	select HWMON
   to the NET_DSA Kconfig entry.
   Example is Broadcom TIGON3 driver.

- Add a DSA_HWMON Kconfig entry to define the dependencies and
   to let the user select if the functionality should be enabled.
   Example is Intel IGB driver.

Any preference from your side ? If no, I'll go with the latter.

Thanks,
Guenter
