Yes, it means that you can build a QEMU without those, for example if
you want to have only cg3 or you are okay with requiring -nodefaults.

Basically if there is a way to run QEMU without those devices, they are
marked as optional (and use "imply" rather than "select").

Later on we might have a way to autogenerate these .mak files, and add a
help message to the Kconfig files that will be copied in the .mak files.
 For now, if it breaks you keep both pieces, but at least we guarantee
that disabling optional devices will still result in a QEMU that starts
the machine with -nodefaults.
