This is now commit 2c53d0f64c06f458 ("vdpasim: vDPA device simulator").

    * VDPA drivers

    VDPA drivers (VDPA_MENU) [N/y/?] (NEW) ?

    There is no help available for this option.
    Symbol: VDPA_MENU [=n]
    Type  : bool
    Defined at drivers/vdpa/Kconfig:9
     Prompt: VDPA drivers
     Location:
       -> Device Drivers

I think this deserves a help text, so users know if they want to enable this
option or not.

I had a quick look, but couldn't find the meaning of "vdpa" in the whole kernel
source tree.

Thanks!
