In fact, vhost can be built with TUN=n VHOST_NET=y as well
(tun_get_socket is stubbed out in that case).
So I think this is better (it looks strange
until you realize that for tristate variables
boolean logic math does not apply):

Subject: vhost: fix TUN=m VHOST_NET=y

    drivers/built-in.o: In function `get_tun_socket':
    net.c:(.text+0x15436e): undefined reference to `tun_get_socket'

If tun is a module, vhost must be a module, too.
If tun is built-in or disabled, vhost can be built-in.
