I had expected this to have the same meaning that we had before the
Kconfig change: whenever the dependencies are available, turn it on,
otherwise leave it disabled.

Can you describe what behavior you actually want instead?

It would be easy enough to make this a visible 'bool' symbol and
build it into the rcu-du-drm.ko module itself. Would that help you?
