General tip: in menuconfig systems, you can search for a string by
typing the / character.
In the result overview, you see the found symbols, and also the
location in the menu structure. If there are any dependencies or
automatic selections, these are shown in boolean syntax as well. This
is precisely the information needed to deduce what Baruch wrote above.
