This only is true for UML1 diagrams, not for UML2 where dependencies are an
independent association type (see 

What remains is one or both of the following options added to (what I can see
yet) normal associations.

The above mentioned example do not show any stereotypes on the "required"
association, which let me think that option 1. would be the best.

To get an impression, it would be interesting to see how other UML tools do
