SUPERH has the MMU dependence because it's the only one out of that list
of architectures that supports both CONFIG_MMU=y and CONFIG_MMU=n
configurations. The dependence on CONFIG_MMU should be tied in to the
HUGETLBFS dependency directly, which is what my patch did.

The other issue is that the dependencies here are just totally backwards.
the file system has the architecture dependence which enables support for
the hugetlb page feature, while the architectures should simply select
whether they can support the hugetlb pages or not and have the file
system conditionalized on that. A bit more work is needed to have
HUGETLBFS and HUGETLB_PAGE toggling independently of each other without
breaking, but that's certainly the next logical step.
