Cool, I appreciate you tuning it up for me.

It looks like you copied the dependencies from util-linux? I'm not that 
familiar with kconfig, there's no concept of transitive dependencies, 
such that if mkfs.ubifs selects util-linux, it will automatically 
inherit its dependencies? If I'm understanding correctly, if at some 
point util-linux changes dependencies, the mtd config for mkfs.ubifs 
would also need to be updated explicitly to capture them?

Thanks much…
