    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
