Randy's "logfs: fix logfs build errors and dependencies" is an
only-in-mm thing.  So it would make sense to combine the two patches
into a single one and to give that an appropriate changelog.

How does this look? (Primary author was chosen randomly)


From: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@arndb.de>
Subject: logfs: fix logfs build errors and dependencies

Fix build errors that happen when CONFIG_LOGFS=y and CONFIG_MTD=m:

fs/built-in.o: In function `logfs_mount':
super.c:(.text+0x92a6f): undefined reference to `logfs_get_sb_mtd'
fs/built-in.o: In function `logfs_get_sb_bdev':
(.text+0x93530): 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
enabled.
