Great !

Then bottom line we will change mlx5/Kconfig: to

depends on VXLAN || !VXLAN

This will force MLX5_CORE to m when necessary to make vxlan reachable
to mlx5_core.  So no need for explicit use of IS_REACHABLE().
in mlx5 there are 4 of these:

        imply PTP_1588_CLOCK
        imply VXLAN
        imply MLXFW
        imply PCI_HYPERV_INTERFACE


I will make a patch.

Thanks,
Saeed.
