Hmm. I think the real problem is that it allowed LZO to be enabled at all,
despite HAVE_KERNEL_LZO not being enabled.

In other words, I think the config dependencies for RD_LZO are just
totally broken.

Does this work for you?

(Totally untested and not very much thought about, this is just a "that
looks really _wrong_" kind of patch)
