Because we need CONFIG_WL12XX_PLATFORM_DATA=y
The upstream driver uses a small file made to be build-in that holds pointer to some platform data, that platform code will furnish.
Originated submitted code made wl12xx a platform driver + sdio driver. Upstream was not very confortable with this and preferred this simpler solution.
So those =y then just builds 2 functions (set/get) and a static pointer in, not any whole wireless driver.
