platform/x86: dell-smbios: Resolve dependency error on ACPI_WMI

Similarly to DCDBAS for DELL_SMBIOS_SMM, if DELL_SMBIOS_WMI is enabled,
DELL_SMBIOS becomes dependent on ACPI_WMI. Update the depends lines to
prevent a configuration where DELL_SMBIOS=y and either backend
dependency =m. Update the comment accordingly.

This provides support for the Dell SMBIOS calling interface.
If you have a Dell computer you should enable this option.
