Hello,

I just noticed that this patch (now in mainline as commit 8a2cc0505cc4)
drops the test if CONFIG_BPFILTER_UMH is "y" so that -static is now
passed to the linker even if bpfilter_umh is built as a module which
wasn't the case in v5.7.

This is not mentioned in the commit message and the comment still says
"*builtin* bpfilter_umh should be linked with -static" so this change
doesn't seem to be intentional. Did I miss something?
