Umm... Is "visible" really accurate in this case? AFAICS, the
entry (and help for it) _is_ visible with EXPERT=n. OTOH, with
EXPERT=y and MULTIUSER=n it disappears completely.
I'm not familiar with kconfig guts (and not too concerned about that
feature of help there, TBH), but it looks like what you are printing
there is some mix of dependencies ("visible when") and selectability...
