Subject: [PATCH v1 2/3] kconfig: Ask user if string needs to be changed when dependency changed
Date: Mon, 15 Feb 2021 13:25:12 +0100
Message-ID: <20210215122513.1773897-3-mic@digikod.net> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210215122513.1773897-1-mic@digikod.net>

From: Mickaël Salaün <mic@linux.microsoft.com>

Content of string configuration may depend on related kernel
configurations.  Modify oldconfig and syncconfig to inform users about
possible required configuration update and give them the opportunity to
update it:
* if dependencies of this string has changed (e.g. enabled or disabled),
* and if the current value of this string is different than the (new)
  default one.

This is particularly relevant for CONFIG_LSM which contains a list of
LSMs enabled at boot, but users will not have a chance to update this
list with a make oldconfig.
