What you could do is to use "select INPUT_FF_MEMLESS if HID" to make it
visible that this dependency is actually for select.
This point is a little subtle and I'm not completely happy with it, maybe
I'm going to split this into two select variations - one which includes
all the dependencies and one which only uses the config symbol to select.
Another question for you - what is the best way to describe
dependancy of a sub-option on a subsystem so you won't end up with the
subsystem as a module and user built in. Something like
tristate "Device driver for IBM RSA service processor"
depends on X86 && PCI && EXPERIMENTAL
bool "Support for remote keyboard/mouse"
depends on IBM_ASM && (INPUT=y || INPUT=IMB_ASM)
But the above feels yucky. Could we have something like:
depends on matching(INPUT, IBM_ASM)
