I feel like a broken record...

CONFIG_DRM_I915=y and CONFIG_BACKLIGHT_CLASS_DEVICE=m is an invalid
configuration. The patch at hand just silently hides the problem,
leaving you without backlight.

i915 should *depend* on backlight, not select it. It would express the
dependency without chances for invalid configuration.

However, i915 alone can't depend on backlight, all users of backlight
should depend on backlight, not select it. Otherwise, you end up with
other configuration problems, circular dependencies and
whatnot. Everyone should change. See also (*) why select is not a good
idea here.

I've sent patches to this effect before, got rejected, and the same
thing gets repeated ad infinitum.

Accepting this patch would stop the inflow of these reports and similar
patches, but it does not fix the root cause. It just sweeps the problem
under the rug.


BR,
Jani.

(*) Documentation/kbuild/kconfig-language.rst:

select should be used with care. select will force
a symbol to a value without visiting the dependencies.
By abusing select you are able to select a symbol FOO even
if FOO depends on BAR that is not set.
In general use select only for non-visible symbols
(no prompts anywhere) and for symbols with no dependencies.
That will limit the usefulness but on the other hand avoid
the illegal configurations all over.
