Yeah, ok, I remember now, I saw that TI_CPSW_SWITCHDEV is tristate, and
incorrectly thought that TI_K3_AM65_CPSW_SWITCHDEV (which is mostly a
copy-paste job of the main cpsw anyway, makes you cringe that they wrote
a separate driver for it) is tristate too.

The options are either to make TI_K3_AM65_CPSW_SWITCHDEV tristate like
TI_CPSW_SWITCHDEV is, and to edit the Makefile accordingly to make
am65-cpsw-switchdev.o part of obj-$(CONFIG_TI_K3_AM65_CPSW_SWITCHDEV),
or to extend the BRIDGE || BRIDGE=n dependency to TI_K3_AM65_CPSW_NUSS
which is the direct tristate dependency of CONFIG_TI_K3_AM65_CPSW_SWITCHDEV,
and to make CONFIG_TI_K3_AM65_CPSW_SWITCHDEV simply depend on BRIDGE.
