drivers/net/fec_8xx config problem

I just noticed that the fec_8xx driver is not currently reachable via  
menuconfig because it depends on 8XX instead of 8xx.  It looks like  
this change occurred in commit  
d1c0a65fb597697d1fbce4eadf42b84f70483edc, almost a year ago:

diff --git a/drivers/net/fec_8xx/Kconfig b/drivers/net/fec_8xx/Kconfig

-       depends on NET_ETHERNET && 8xx
+       depends on 8XX
         select MII

Since nobody has noticed this problem, I'm wondering if this driver  
is still in (infrequent) use, or if it's been superseded and should  
be removed, or if I'm just completely missing something with respect  
to the use of "8XX" instead of "8xx".

I'm happy to submit a patch to correct this, I'm just not sure what  
the right answer is.
