    Hm, this portion of Kconfig is a trap in a way indeed - on the other
    hand it is also a useful tool and the simplistic approach to
    disallow select altogether is a step backwards.

    IIRC either Vegard or Steve has come up with a patch series that
    improved Kconfig to warn about problem selects while still allowing
    the simple ones. That would deflect most of the bad uses while still
    allowing the good uses. Not sure what happened to that series.
