4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Arnd Bergmann <a...@arndb.de>

commit f3bb23764fac042d189129d485d3a9246cb777da upstream.

This avoids a harmless randconfig warning I get when USB_NET_CDC_SUBSET
is enabled, but all of the more specific drivers are not:

drivers/net/usb/cdc_subset.c:241:2: #warning You need to configure some 
hardware for this driver

The current behavior is clearly intentional, giving a warning when
a user picks a configuration that won't do anything good. The only
reason for even addressing this is that I'm getting close to
eliminating all 'randconfig' warnings on ARM, and this came up
a couple of times.

My workaround is to not even build the module when none of the
configurations are enable.

Alternatively we could simply remove the #warning (nothing wrong
for compile-testing), turn it into a runtime warning, or
change the Kconfig options into a menu to hide CONFIG_USB_NET_CDC_SUBSET.
