kernel test robot reports over 200 build errors and warnings
that are due to this Kconfig problem when CARL9170=m,
MAC80211=y, and LEDS_CLASS=m.

WARNING: unmet direct dependencies detected for MAC80211_LEDS
  Depends on [n]: NET [=y] && WIRELESS [=y] && MAC80211 [=y] && (LEDS_CLASS [=m]=y || LEDS_CLASS [=m]=MAC80211 [=y])
  Selected by [m]:
  - CARL9170_LEDS [=y] && NETDEVICES [=y] && WLAN [=y] && WLAN_VENDOR_ATH [=y] && CARL9170 [=m]

CARL9170_LEDS selects MAC80211_LEDS even though its kconfig
dependencies are not met. This happens because 'select' does not follow
any Kconfig dependency chains.

Fix this by making CARL9170_LEDS always set/enabled if certain
conditions are met: LEDS_CLASS=y or LEDS_CLASS=CARL9170, just as
this is done for Mediatek MT76.

Hmm, that commit was really a long time ago. In fact it was part of
the initial series for that driver (from September 2010)
1d7e1e6b1b8ed ("carl9170: Makefile, Kconfig files and MAINTAINERS")

 From what I can tell, the "bool / tristate" of LED_CLASS flipped
from tristate (2006) to bool (2010) and back to tristate (2012).

And since MAC80211_LEDS is involved it seems that the latest change
from Arnd:
b64acb28da83 ("ath9k: fix build error with LEDS_CLASS=m")

So, the "select" stuff was present from the start, but it
hasn't been kept up to date I guess.

What happens if CARL9170=M|Y, LED_CLASS=M|Y but MAC80211_LEDS=N?
(with =N, I mean of course: # CONFIG_MAC80211_LEDS is not set. )
 From what I can tell, in this case, the driver will create the LEDs
devices just fine. But since the triggers aren't available (because
they are provided by MAC80211_LEDS) these LEDs will be still called
"tx" and "assoc" but are completely "brainless"/"off".

(carl9170 sets sane default triggers for the LEDS in carl9170_led_register)
---
         err = carl9170_led_register_led(ar, 0, "tx",
                                         ieee80211_get_tx_led_name(ar->hw));
         if (err)
                 goto fail;

         if (ar->features & CARL9170_ONE_LED)
                 return 0;

         err = carl9170_led_register_led(ar, 1, "assoc",
                                         ieee80211_get_assoc_led_name(ar->hw));
---

I would have liked to keep that extra dependency to MAC80211_LEDS.
Would this work with depends/imply? Or will this break in a different way?

Cheers,
Christian

I like that idea.  I've give it a whirl of testing...

thanks.
