nslu2-utils: NSLU2_IXP400_REQUIRED=true is ignored

Subject: nslu2-utils: NSLU2_IXP400_REQUIRED=true is ignored
Package: nslu2-utils
Version: 0.10+r58-4
Severity: critical
Justification: breaks the whole system

When updating from 0.10+r58-3 to 0.10+r58-4 the firmware gets flashed although
the option NSLU2_IXP400_REQUIRED is set to true ans there is no ipx400 module.

This breaks the slugs by making it unbootable. The user hast to flash a working
firmware with upslug.
