IMHO, these dependencies belong in documentation, not enforcement code.

Same applies for LAST_BUDDY, meaningless without WAKEUP_PREEMPT.
SYNC_MORE, SYNC_LESS + AFFINE_WAKEUPS etc.

Bottom line for all button poking and knob turning is you'd better make
sure you know what button/knob does, and what other things may depend on
it before messing with it, lest you get a nasty surprise.
