I see the following if I replace 'select FB' with 'depends on FB':

drivers/video/fbdev/Kconfig:5:error: recursive dependency detected!
drivers/video/fbdev/Kconfig:5:  symbol FB is selected by DRM_KMS_FB_HELPER
drivers/gpu/drm/Kconfig:39:     symbol DRM_KMS_FB_HELPER depends on
DRM_KMS_HELPER
drivers/gpu/drm/Kconfig:33:     symbol DRM_KMS_HELPER is selected by DRM_VMWGFX
drivers/gpu/drm/vmwgfx/Kconfig:1:       symbol DRM_VMWGFX depends on FB
