I checked the code in menu_finalize(), and this seems to work like this.

I discussed the oddity of the select behavior before
(https://lore.kernel.org/linux-kbuild/e1a6228d-1341-6264-d97a-e2bd52a65c82@infradead.org/),
but I was not confident about what the right direction was.


Anyway, the behavior is obscure from the current code.

If you want to make this more robust,
you can write as follows:

config F2FS_FS
tristate "F2FS filesystem support"
depends on BLOCK
select NLS
select CRYPTO
select CRYPTO_CRC32
select F2FS_FS_XATTR if FS_ENCRYPTION
select FS_ENCRYPTION_ALGS if FS_ENCRYPTION
select LZO_COMPRESS if F2FS_FS_LZO
select LZO_DECOMPRESS if F2FS_FS_LZO
select LZ4_COMPRESS if F2FS_FS_LZ4
select LZ4_DECOMPRESS if F2FS_FS_LZ4
select LZ4HC_COMPRESS if F2FS_FS_LZ4HC
select ZSTD_COMPRESS if F2FS_FS_ZSTD
select ZSTD_DECOMPRESS if F2FS_FS_ZSTD

The code is a bit clumsy, but it is clear
that the module (F2FS_FS) is selecting the
compress/decompress libraries.
