OK, this info is more relevant to the 2nd patch.

I folded this following to 2/2.

diff --git a/Documentation/kbuild/kconfig-language.rst

+ Note: If the feature provided by BAZ is highly desirable for FOO,
+ FOO should imply not only BAZ, but also its dependency BAR::

+ config FOO

+ imply BAR

- limiting menu display: "visible if" <expr>
