kemleak-test: build as module only
mm/kmemleak-test.c is used to provide an example of how kmemleak tool works. Memory is leaked at module unload-time, so building the test in kernel (Y) makes the leaks impossible and the test useless. Qualify DEBUG_KMEMLEAK_TEST config symbol with "depends on m", to restrict module-only building.
