There was some pushback on the patch, mostly from Arnd.

I think we agree that it's not easier to read/understand, but Nicolas
is the maintainer... and he patched kconfig so that this would work.
kconfig did need fixing in that respect -- it was supposed to work
but didn't.

(That was commit 9059a3493efea6492451430c7e2fa0af799a2abb:
kconfig: fix relational operators for bool and tristate symbols)
