commit 30fb9454ab23 ("selftests/vm: hmm-tests: remove the libhugetlbfs
dependency") created the new check_config.sh file without the execute
bit set. This is a problem because that same commit caused the Makefile
to invoke it "./check_config.sh", so now "make" is failing in that

Scripts are not supposed to depend on the executable bit being set,
because patch(1) doesn't set it, and using patch to install a kernel is
supported. Therefore, this fix involves two parts:

1) Invoke the new script via /bin/sh, to fix the problem, and

2) As an nice touch, make check_config.sh executable as well.
