Currently, Kconfig does not report anything about the recursive
dependency where 'imply' keywords are involved.

[Test Code]

  config A
          bool "a"

  config B
          bool "b"
          imply A
          depends on A

In the code above, Kconfig cannot calculate the symbol values correctly
due to the circular dependency.  For example, allyesconfig followed by
syncconfig results in an odd behavior because CONFIG_B becomes visible
in syncconfig.

  $ make allyesconfig
  scripts/kconfig/conf  --allyesconfig Kconfig
  #
  # configuration written to .config
  #
  $ cat .config
  #
  # Automatically generated file; DO NOT EDIT.
  # Main menu
  #
  CONFIG_A=y
  $ make syncconfig
  scripts/kconfig/conf  --syncconfig Kconfig
  *
  * Restart config...
  *
  *
  * Main menu
  *
  a (A) [Y/n/?] y
    b (B) [N/y/?] (NEW)

To report this correctly, sym_check_expr_deps() should recurse to
not only sym->rev_dep.expr but also sym->implied.expr .

At this moment, sym_check_print_recursive() cannot distinguish
'select' and 'imply' since it does not know the precise context
where the recursive dependency is hit.  This will be solved by
the next commit.

Hello Masahiro,

obviously, it is hard to find a reason why one wants to use dependencies
like above but I also wonder how e.g. menuconfig handles this case:

First, only "a" is visible, if I then select "a", "b" does not become
visible but when I then reset "a" to "n", "b" becomes visible.  If I then
try to select "b", it becomes invisible...

Perhaps it would be better to just error out instead of giving users the
impression, Kconfig thinks such questionable behavior is OK.

Side note: perhaps, the documentation could be better when it comes to
           recursive dependencies.  The documentation says "select" and
           "imply" can be used to specify lower limits whereas direct
           dependencies specify upper limits for symbol values and with
           this in mind, one might wonder why it is a problem to work
           with both limits in a recursive way.

           Not very unlikely that it is just me who still has to
           understand recursive dependencies or problems with reading
           English text, though.

What definitely seems to get void with your patches is item c) in
"Practical solutions to kconfig recursive issue" in
Documentation/kbuild/kconfig-language:

        c) Consider the use of "imply" instead of "select"

Just some more information that adds to me feeling unsure about the
correct definition of recursive dependencies:

With commit 29c434f367ea (kconfig: tests: test if recursive dependencies
are detected) a test case similar to the example above was introduced,
explicitely stating it is _no_ recursive dependency:

+# depends on and imply
+# This is not recursive dependency
+
+config E1
+       bool "E1"
+       depends on E2
+       imply E2
+
+config E2
+       bool "E2"

Taking closer look at the code, the intention is 'recursive dependency
is error',
but the behavior changed probably by an accident.

I fixed this:

To avoid confusion, two things should be discussed separately:

[1] Unmet dependency
   This is caused by a conflict between the upper limit from 'depends on'
   and the lower limit from 'select'.

    This issue does not happen for 'imply' because the upper limit
    specified by 'imply' is weaker.


[2] Recursive depenency

   This can happen for any combination of 'depends on',
   'select', 'imply', 'if', 'default', etc.

I do not know why commit 237e3ad0f195d8 added this line.


Actually, I was also confused.

I sent v2 based on your feedback.

Thanks.

For some reason, I added this
without thinking why.


I believe this should be recursive dependency.


Thanks.

Thanks for your responses, making that all more understandable.
