BugLink: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1795857

CONFIG_DRM_BOCHS got disabled for LP#1378648 from 2014 which does not
seems to be an issue anymore. On the contrary, disabling it breaks
using Ubuntu in a QEMU virtual machine when passing its 'std' VGA

Re-enable BOCHS again as module to ensure one can use Ubuntu in QEMU
backed virtual machines in common default settings.

Note: one needs to still ensure that it can load, i.e., nothing marks
it as blacklisted as, e.g., kmod does.
