You mean if module X depends on module Y, we shouldn't use select?
But this exactly what this patch does :).

The problem here is that when X depends on Y, and X=y and Y=m
when we try to compile X if get an error because we cannot find a symbol from Y.

I think if X depends on Y, and X is forced to "y" then also Y should
be forced on "y".
