 [fs/ext4/ext4.ko] undefined!

We forgot to audit remote dependencies outside of the fs/ext4 tree on
CONFIG_EXT4_FS_XATTR.  The following patch should fix things up.  (I
won't bother editing all of the defconfig files, since the extra
CONFIG option doesn't do any harm, and modifying those files increases
the chances of merge conflicts.)

Thanks, kbuild test robot!  :-)
