Right.

This probably won't work as this is currently part of the ti-am65-cpsw-nuss.ko
module, so I would assume that it's not easy to separate from the main module.

That would work, but it's slightly more heavy-handed than my proposal, as this
prevents TI_K3_AM65_CPSW_NUSS from being built-in when BRIDGE is a module,
even when switchdev support is completely disabled.

> and to make CONFIG_TI_K3_AM65_CPSW_SWITCHDEV simply depend on BRIDGE.

This would not be needed then I think.
