Subject2.6: kconfig handling of recursive dependencies could be improved
Hi Roman,

I tried to implement a "select at least one of these options" using the
following Kconfig snippet:

config A
bool "a"

config B
bool "b"

config C
default y if A=n && B=n
select A
select B

"make *config" says
Warning! Found recursive dependency: A C A
Warning! Found recursive dependency: C A C B

and handles it a bit strange.

Yes, there is a limited recursion, but it's a finite recursion and I
don't know of any other way to express this in the current kconfig
