Right, I missed that.  It needs to select both NEW_LEDS and LED_CLASS.
Do I need to resend the whole series, or can this be fixed while
applying?

HT16K33 already depends on INPUT.

Unfortunately we have no choice, unless we untangle the depends/select
web first:

HT16K33 depends on NEW_LEDS, select LEDS_CLASS:

    drivers/leds/Kconfig:9:error: recursive dependency detected!
    drivers/leds/Kconfig:9:     symbol NEW_LEDS is selected by SENSORS_APPLESMC

HT16K33 depends on LEDS_CLASS:

    drivers/leds/Kconfig:17:error: recursive dependency detected!
    drivers/leds/Kconfig:17:    symbol LEDS_CLASS depends on NEW_LEDS
