Looks like a bad example to follow:
  1. The driver question now pops up if both I2C and SPI_MASTER
     are disabled,
  2. What if SERIAL_SC16IS7XX_CORE is builtin, but I2C and/or
     SPI_MASTER are modular?

I believe the only way to fix that is by letting the sub-drivers select the
core driver, like before.
