You can do that with CML1 or his code. The problem is that you need to
go back through checking with the user because

- Some requirements are going to suprise and may stop other
settings

(Simple example "I want GMX2000 support" -> requires DRM 4.0
DRM 4.0 requires they turn off some DRM 4.1 stuff they selected

- Some have alternate solutions

But you can deduce what to ask the user
-
To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-kernel" in
the body of a message to majordomo@vger.kernel.org
