'imply' would probably be a good idea here.

By then I will live with custom patches to the main tree, thanks for support.

Maybe we can work towards removing the 'select' statements in those
cases and using 'imply' instead?

implementation/replacement of existing driver
yes, but I'm afraid that this would work only in simplest cases eg.
when an in-tree driver is not selected as dependency etc...

You should be able to just disable the in-tree driver using Kconfig
and use your own out of tree driver.
"Jan Pohanka via lists.zephyrproject.org"
I would like to use my own implementation of an existing driver. Is
there any way to do that? I have found an amend feature in
https://github.com/zephyrproject-rtos/zephyr/pull/19980 but I cannot
make it work. If I understand correctly it is intended more to add
some functionality than completely replace.
In my use-case it would be probably easier to use out of tree
implementation for some time than maintain patches for the main
In fact I need just to add support for new soc from the stm32 family
that is not yet in existing drivers (clock, watchdog, ethernet,
Later when our code is polished, I will prepare pull-requests.
