Nothing makes me cringe more than "somebody else's job" statements. In
this case, there is obviously a correlation with your ACPI changes since
the circular dependency happens because of the ACPI symbol.

arch/ia64/Kconfig:126:error: recursive dependency detected!
arch/ia64/Kconfig:126:    choice <choice> contains symbol IA64_HP_SIM
arch/ia64/Kconfig:200:    symbol IA64_HP_SIM is part of choice PM
kernel/power/Kconfig:144:    symbol PM is selected by PM_SLEEP

At any rate, a 3 mn git bisect tells me the circular dependency is
exposed by this change:

    fscrypt: remove filesystem specific build config option

    In order to have a common code base for fscrypt "post read" processing
    for all filesystems which support encryption, this commit removes
    filesystem specific build config option (e.g.
    and replaces it with a build option (i.e. CONFIG_FS_ENCRYPTION) whose
    value affects all the filesystems making use of fscrypt.
