I don't understand the problem, because you have the definition

bool "CAN PCLK 50MHz"
depends on PCH_PHUB

which is 'bool', not 'tristate', so it can never be a module.
If you are referring to a dependency on the CAN code that is
not part of this patch, you can express this as

bool "CAN PCLK 50MHz"
depends on PCH_PHUB || CAN != "n"

This will leave CONFIG_PCH_CAN_PCLK_50MHZ as bool and let it only
get enabled if CONFIG_CAN is either "y" or "m".
Does that answer your question?
