    select is the wrong tool for this. NET is usually enabled anyway,
    selecting it has no real advantage.
    Please use normal dependency whereever possible and use select in such
    cases only as exception and with very good reason. Making kernel
    configuration easier for aunt Tillie is not such reason.
