    kbuild: document recursive dependency limitation / resolution · 1c199f28
    Luis R. Rodriguez authored
    Recursive dependency issues with kconfig are unavoidable due to
    some limitations with kconfig, since these issues are recurring
    provide a hint to the user how they can resolve these dependency
    issues and also document why such limitation exists.
    While at it also document a bit of future prospects of ways to
    enhance Kconfig, including providing formal semantics and evaluation
    of use of a SAT solver. If you're interested in this work or prospects
    of it check out the kconfig-sat project wiki [0] and mailing list [1].
