That may be what it means now (I still don't understand how it's defined
as of v5.7-rc1), but traditionally it was more like a 'select if all
dependencies
are met'.

In that case, a Makefile trick could also work, doing

ifdef CONFIG_DRM_RCAR_CMM
obj-$(CONFIG_DRM_RCAR_DU) += rcar-cmm.o
endif

Thereby making the cmm module have the same state (y or m) as
the du module whenever the option is enabled.
