Hmm, so looking at this more, I was able to produce this config with my
ancient cross-compiler:


Now, mpc85xx_edac is built-in and edac_core.ko is a module
(CONFIG_EDAC=m) and that should not work - i.e., builtin code calling
module functions. But my cross-compiler is happily building this without
complaint. Or maybe I'm missing something.

In any case, I *think* the proper fix should be to do:

config EDAC_MPC85XX
        bool "Freescale MPC83xx / MPC85xx"
        depends on FSL_SOC && EDAC=y

so that you can't even produce the above invalid .config snippet.
