Subject: [PATCH] bpfilter: allow to build bpfilter_umh as a module without static library

Originally, bpfilter_umh was linked with -static only when
CONFIG_BPFILTER_UMH=y.

Commit 8a2cc0505cc4 ("bpfilter: use 'userprogs' syntax to build
bpfilter_umh") silently, accidentally dropped the CONFIG_BPFILTER_UMH=y
test in the Makefile. Revive it in order to link it dynamically when
CONFIG_BPFILTER_UMH=m.

Since commit b1183b6dca3e ("bpfilter: check if $(CC) can link static
libc in Kconfig"), the compiler must be capable of static linking to
enable CONFIG_BPFILTER_UMH, but it requires more than needed.

To loosen the compiler requirement, I changed the dependency as follows:

    depends on CC_CAN_LINK
    depends on m || CC_CAN_LINK_STATIC

If CONFIG_CC_CAN_LINK_STATIC in unset, CONFIG_BPFILTER_UMH is restricted
to 'm' or 'n'.

In theory, CONFIG_CC_CAN_LINK is not required for CONFIG_BPFILTER_UMH=y,
but I did not come up with a good way to describe it.

Fixes: 8a2cc0505cc4 ("bpfilter: use 'userprogs' syntax to build bpfilter_umh")
