[PATCH] nouveau: add fbdev dependency

Calling directly into the fbdev stack only works when the
fbdev layer is built into the kernel as well, or both are
loadable modules:

drivers/gpu/drm/nouveau/nouveau_drm.o: in function `nouveau_drm_probe':
nouveau_drm.c:(.text+0x1f90): undefined reference to `remove_conflicting_pci_framebuffers'

The change seems to have been intentional, so add an explicit
dependency here but allow it to still be compiled if FBDEV
is completely disabled.

Fixes: 2dd4d163cd9c ("drm/nouveau: remove open-coded version of remove_conflicting_pci_framebuffers()")
