Okay. The following Kconfig illustrates what I claim to be a bug.
config A
bool "This is A"
select B

config B
bool "This is B"
# Or, depends C=y
depends C

config C
bool "This is C"


Running oldconfig will give:
This is A (A) [N/y] (NEW) y
This is C (C) [N/y] (NEW) n
...
And in .config:
CONFIG_A=y
CONFIG_B=y
# CONFIG_C is not set

I claim that this should in fact be:
CONFIG_A=y
CONFIG_B=y
CONFIG_C=y
