[Buildroot] [PATCH] qt5base: Qt KMS support does not depend on opengl

Qt KMS support should not explicitly depend on the availability of opengl.
Don't explicitly disable KMS if opengl is not available and allow Qt to auto
detect and built as necessary.

The scenario where this is necessary involves using the Qt linuxfb backend
"dumb buffer" support via the DRM API.  This is new in Qt 5.9 [1] and only
requires KMS, but not opengl.
