    Subject[PATCH 18/19] BLOCK: Make USB storage depend on SCSI rather than selecting it [try #6]
    From: David Howells <>

    This makes CONFIG_USB_STORAGE depend on CONFIG_SCSI rather than selecting it,
    as selecting it makes CONFIG_USB_STORAGE override the dependencies of SCSI,
    causing it to turn on even if they aren't all met.
