Hmm, OK.

Commit bcdedcc1afd6 seemed to fix it as a side-effect,
but you broke it by 1/4, then fixed it again by 3/4.


Sample code:

menu "bar"
visible if BAR
depends on BAZ

config FOO
bool "foo"

endmenu


Help of FOO:

Before bcdedcc1afd6 ->Depends on: BAZ && BAR
After bcdedcc1afd6 -> Depends on: BAZ
After 1/4 -> Depends on: BAZ && BAR
After 3/4 -> Depends on: BAZ



I think "Depends on BAZ" is correct
since BAR only affects the visibility of the prompt.


In order to not break anything,
maybe, does it make sense to re-order, like this?

2/4, 3/4, 1/4, 4/4

The code looks correct to me.

Just a nit: could you fix up the block comment style?


/*
* Blah, blah...
* Blah, blah...
*/
