Subject: [PATCH] Fix some ARM builds due to HID brokenness

The new location for HID is extremely annoying:

1. the help text implies that you need to enable it for any
   keyboard or mouse attached to the system.  This is not

2. it defaults to 'y'.  When you have input deselected, this
   causes the kernel to fail to link:

hid-input.c:(.text+0x55054): undefined reference to `input_ff_event'

Fix the second problem by making it depend on INPUT.  The first
problem is left as an exercise for the HID maintainers to solve.
