The dependency was clearly needed, without it it is possible to
build the core i2c driver as a loadable module and the bq27xxx
driver built-in, which results in link errors:

drivers/built-in.o: In function `bq27xxx_battery_i2c_read':
binder.c:(.text+0x360bf0): undefined reference to `i2c_transfer'
binder.c:(.text+0x360c10): undefined reference to `i2c_transfer'
drivers/built-in.o: In function `bq27xxx_battery_init':
binder.c:(.init.text+0xe668): undefined reference to `i2c_register_driver'
drivers/built-in.o: In function `bq27xxx_battery_exit':
binder.c:(.exit.text+0x1a0c): undefined reference to `i2c_del_driver'

The bug was originally found and fixed by Xiong Zhou, but Andrew Davis
broke it again by reverting the fix.

I found it today on my ARM randconfig builds.
