CONFIG_ACPI depends on CONFIG_PM, yet this build fails because you have

Unfortunately kconfig doesn't trace dependencies when "select" is used,
making select sort of evil. Ie. select can't target anything which
itself has dependencies.

In 2.6.15, b0bd35e622ffbda2c01dc67a0381c6a18817a29a added the select below,
and subsequently ACPI became dependent on PM, which broke your build.
Technically, this could have broken your build in other ways too
since ACPI already had other dependencies.

+# Dummy CONFIG option to select ACPI_NUMA from drivers/acpi/Kconfig.
+config X86_64_ACPI_NUMA
+ bool "ACPI NUMA detection"
+ depends on NUMA
+ select ACPI
+ select ACPI_NUMA
+ default y
+ help
+ Enable ACPI SRAT based node topology detection.

If you de-select CONFIG_X86_64_ACPI_NUMA then the select goes away
and kconfig should work properly.

It isn't immediately clear to me how the NUMA Kconfig patch is a step
forward, but perhaps the authors can comment.
