With my current knowledge of kconfig i would say: depends on what the
output of this is used for.
If you're reading the dependency list as "what do i have to enable to
be able to choose a value for FRAME_POINTER" and think, THUMB2_KERNEL
would be a good choice to leave disabled, you're going to have a bad
time.
(The second definition in arm/Kconfig.debug doesn't have a prompt and
the default has additional conditions)

If it should just point out, FRAME_POINTER could be enabled, the
"After Depends on:" is right. However, the conditions for the Default
in the second definition still would have to be satisfied.


If the whole list of kconfig menus is dumped, i'd expect there to be a
second print:
Defined at arch/arm/Kconfig.debug:35
Depends on: !THUMB2_KERNEL [=n]


After doing some reading:
the function is used in the search and help function for mconf to
print the dependencies and, at least in my output, did include a
Prompt statement. i'd say to add "!THUMB2_KERNEL" to the dependency
could be misleading! however the second definition of the symbol is
not hit by a search for FRAME_POINTER. I personally would prefer to
additionally find the second definition that doesn't a prompt and
other dependencies instead of adding them to the first entry, but
that's just my personal preference.
