Subject: [PATCH] vhost: do not enable VHOST_MENU by default

We try to keep the defconfig untouched after decoupling CONFIG_VHOST
out of CONFIG_VIRTUALIZATION in commit 20c384f1ea1a
("vhost: refine vhost and vringh kconfig") by enabling VHOST_MENU by
default. Then the defconfigs can keep enabling CONFIG_VHOST_NET
without the caring of CONFIG_VHOST.

But this will leave a "CONFIG_VHOST_MENU=y" in all defconfigs and even
for the ones that doesn't want vhost. So it actually shifts the
burdens to the maintainers of all other to add "CONFIG_VHOST_MENU is
not set". So this patch tries to enable CONFIG_VHOST explicitly in
defconfigs that enables CONFIG_VHOST_NET and CONFIG_VHOST_VSOCK.
