Can we say that the 'select' priority is higher or equal than 'depends
on'?  If we really can say so, we need change our gpio driver.

Else ('depends on' priority is higher than 'select')

 - some architectures can choose whether support IRQ_DOMAIN.

 - if IRQ_DOMAIN enabled, our gpio driver can be used, and then select
   GENERIC_IRQ_CHIP (need not consider about it selects IRQ_DOMAIN).

 - else (IRQ_DOMAIN_disabled), we can not use our gpio driver, and also
   can not select GENERIC_IRQ_CHIP (need not consider about it selects
   IRQ_DOMAIN, either).

Excuse me, I am not quite familiar with Kconfig grammar, can any members
give a confirmation for it (whether 'select' priority is higher or equal
than 'depends on').
