We're indeed not consistent enough here.  Given how large
common/spl/Kconfig is already today I suspect the right answer is that
more things should be grouped closer to their non-SPL/TPL counterpart
questions, with correct depends on lines.  And options with names such
that we can't use CONFIG_IS_ENABLED(FOO)/obj-$(CONFIG_$(SPL_TPL_)_FOO)
need to be renamed as well.  That should in turn lead to being able to
correctly drop USB out of SPL for example.
