| Actually that doesn't seem to work either. Even though
| SECURITY_NAMESPACES=y, the config system seems to infer that
| since NAMESPACES is not user-selectable, NAMESPACES_EXPERIMENTAL
| shouldn't be either. So we end up with NAMESPACES_EXPERIMENTAL

Yes. Given that NAMESPACES depends on EMBEDDED, NAMESPACES_EXPERIMENTAL
can simply depend on NAMESPACES and EXPERIMENTAL with a default of N.

BTW, does the position of 'config NAMESPACES' in init/Kconfig file
matter ? If it is dependent on EMBEDDED, should it not come later
in the file, after 'config EMBEDDED' ?
