The dependency just means it can't be enabled unless the dependency is
met. I believe its valid for the case when the config system starts and
the user disables UART_NS16550, then HAS_IOPORTS would need to be
disabled. Without the dependency then this wouldn't be turned off when
UART_NS16550 is turned off. There are a number of examples of this in
the Linux kernel's usage of kconfig.
