Subject[PATCH 3/4] kconfig: distinguish between dependencies and visibility in help text
Date
Kconfig makes a distinction between dependencies (defined by "depends
on" expressions and enclosing "if" blocks) and visibility (which
includes all dependencies, but also includes inline "if" expressions of
individual properties as well as, for prompts, "visible if" expressions
of enclosing menus).

Before bcdedcc1afd6 ("menuconfig: print more info for symbol without
prompts", the "Depends on" lines of a symbol's help text indicated the
visibility of the prompt property they appeared under. After
bcdedcc1afd, there was always only a single "Depends on" line, which
indicated the visibility of the first P_SYMBOL property of the symbol.
Since P_SYMBOLs never have inline if expressions, this was in effect the
same as the dependencies of the menu item that the P_SYMBOL was attached
to.

Neither of these situations accurately conveyed the dependencies of a
symbol--the first because it was actually the visibility, and the second
because it only showed the dependencies from a single definition.

Now that we print a "Depends on" line for every definition (regardless
of whether or not it has a prompt), we can do better: this patch
switches the "Depends on" line for prompts to show the real dependencies
of the corresponding menu item and additionally adds a "Visible if" line
that shows the visibility only if the visibility is different from the
dependencies (which it isn't for most prompts in Linux).

Before:

Symbol: THUMB2_KERNEL [=n]
Type : bool
Defined with prompt at arch/arm/Kconfig:1417
Prompt: Compile the kernel in Thumb-2 mode
Depends on: (CPU_V7 [=y] || CPU_V7M [=n]) && !CPU_V6 [=n] && !CPU_V6K [=n] && !CPU_THUMBONLY [=n]
Location:
-> Kernel Features
Selects: ARM_UNWIND [=n]

After:

Symbol: THUMB2_KERNEL [=n]
Type : bool
Defined with prompt at arch/arm/Kconfig:1417
Prompt: Compile the kernel in Thumb-2 mode
Depends on: (CPU_V7 [=y] || CPU_V7M [=n]) && !CPU_V6 [=n] && !CPU_V6K [=n]
Visible if: (CPU_V7 [=y] || CPU_V7M [=n]) && !CPU_V6 [=n] && !CPU_V6K [=n] && !CPU_THUMBONLY [=n]
Location:
-> Kernel Features
Selects: ARM_UNWIND [=n]
