Right. The change I suggested fixes the build errors but doesn't actually
make the intended behavior correct. Just using a configuration file is the
right solution here.

It may be a good use case for the "suggest" Kconfig statement I brought
up before: Rather than having snowball hard enable the LEDS subsystem,
it could 'suggest LEDS_CORE' in order to change the default for that
option, but still let users disable it if they want to.
