It compiles fine with I2C=m, FB_MB862XX=m and FB_MB862XX_I2C=y.

FB_MB862XX_I2C is not a driver, it just adds the i2c support to
FB_MB862XX. The relevant thing is whether FB_MB862XX is m or y, so
compiling with:

I2C=m, FB_MB862XX=y and FB_MB862XX_I2C=y

will fail.

This fix is not correct, as it prevents the following, valid, config:

I2C=m, FB_MB862XX=m and FB_MB862XX_I2C=y
