Subject: [REPOST PATCH] autofs - make autofs4 Kconfig depend on AUTOFS_FS
Date: Mon, 21 May 2018 12:21:30 +0800
Message-ID: <152687649097.8263.7046086367407522029.stgit@pluto.themaw.net> (raw)

Setting AUTOFS_FS and AUTOFS4_FS to y or m results in a compile
failure.

It isn't possible to unset one if the other is set because it
introduces a circular dependency.

But adding "depends on AUTOFS_FS = n" will make autofs4 appear
under the autofs entry which should call attention  to it. It
also results in AUTOFS4_FS being removed from .config for any
setting of AUTOFS_FS except n.

Adding a "NOTE" to the AUTOFS4_FS help text will hopefully raise
awareness of the change to smooth the transition.
