After a change to the way that composite modules work, we get
a logfs build error:

fs/built-in.o: In function `logfs_mount':
:(.text+0x139d34): undefined reference to `logfs_get_sb_mtd'
fs/built-in.o: In function `logfs_get_sb_bdev':
:(.text+0x13aa08): undefined reference to `logfs_get_sb_mtd'

This patch avoids the error by changing the dependencies of
logfs in a way that we can no longer configure logfs as built-in
when the MTD core is a loadable module, while leaving the
dependency to require at least one of MTD or BLOCK to be

Another patch tried to work around the problem, but accidentally
dropped the dependency on 'BLOCK || MTD', allowing the file
system to be built if neither is selected.

Fixes: cf4f21938e13 ("kbuild: Allow to specify composite modules with modname-m")
Fixes: e6be296f680c ("logfs: fix logfs build errors and dependencies")
I originally sent the patch November 27, but the discussion did not
conclude, see https://lkml.org/lkml/2015/11/27/299

This version is rebased on the patch that got applied yesterday.
