Get rid of CONFIG_LSF
We have two seperate config entries for large devices/files. One is CONFIG_LBD that guards just the devices, the other is CONFIG_LSF that handles large files. This doesn't make a lot of sense, you typically want both or none. So get rid of CONFIG_LSF and change CONFIG_LBD wording to indicate that it covers both.

This option is required to support the full capacity of large
(2TB+) block devices, including RAID, disk, Network Block Device,
Logical Volume Manager (LVM) and loopback.

- For example, RAID devices are frequently bigger than the capacity
- of the largest individual hard drive.

- This option is not required if you have individual disk drives
- which total 2TB+ and you are not aggregating the capacity into
- a large block device (e.g. using RAID or LVM).

+ This option also enables support for single files larger than
+ 2TB.
