Subject: QCOM_SCM: config option with useless prompt and no help text


commit d0511b5496c03cdbcda55a9b57c32cdd751920ed
Author: John Stultz <>
Date:   Fri Nov 6 04:27:10 2020 +0000

    firmware: QCOM_SCM: Allow qcom_scm driver to be loadable as a permenent module

You made this into user-visible config option, but what user sees is

Qcom SCM driver (QCOM_SCM) [N/m/y/?] (NEW) ?

There is no help available for this option.
Symbol: QCOM_SCM [=n]
Type  : tristate
Defined at drivers/firmware/Kconfig:237
  Prompt: Qcom SCM driver

Which is pretty sad. Please fix.
