[F][SRU][PATCH 1/1] selftests: rtnetlink: load fou module for kci_test_encap_fou() test

BugLink: https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1891421

The kci_test_encap_fou() test from kci_test_encap() in rtnetlink.sh
needs the fou module to work. Otherwise it will fail with:

  $ ip netns exec "$testns" ip fou add port 7777 ipproto 47
  RTNETLINK answers: No such file or directory
  Error talking to the kernel

Add the CONFIG_NET_FOU into the config file as well. Which needs at
least to be set as a loadable module.
