Subject[patch, -git] drivers/media build fix for modular builds

fix allmodconfig build bug introduced in latest -git by commit
7c91f0624a9 ("V4L/DVB(7767): Move tuners to common/tuners"):

LD kernel/built-in.o
LD drivers/built-in.o
ld: drivers/media/built-in.o: No such file: No such file or directory

which happens if all media drivers are modular:

In that case there's no obj-y rule connecting all the built-in.o files and
the link tree breaks.

the fix is to add a guaranteed obj-y rule for the core vmlinux to build.
(which results in an empty object file if all media drivers are modular)
