I've seen a few other cases like this (IIRC, one is if you do "no
usb*" but leave ehci*/ohci*/uhci* turned on) and there are probably
more lurking.

AIUI config doesn't have any way of knowing that these combinations
aren't sensible. It Would Be Nice(TM) if there were a way, and better
still if it allowed explicitly disabling usb* to automatically prune
ehci*, ohci*, and uhci*... but the latter isn't entirely trivial.
