This new dependency needs to be propagated to places where
BR2_PACKAGE_QT5 is selected:

package/python-pyqt5/Config.in: select BR2_PACKAGE_QT5

However, my feeling is that python-pyqt5 should not be selecting
BR2_PACKAGE_QT5. It should use "depends on BR2_PACKAGE_QT5", it makes
more sense. When you want python-qt5 it's really obvious that you need
Qt5, so for the user it's logical to enable Qt5 and then Python-Qt5.

Bottom line: you could add a patch in your patch series that changes
the python-qt5 package to use a "depends on".
