[1.4.x] Made custom m2m fields without through easier to use

The change in f105fbe made through=None
m2m fields fail in cases where they worked before. It isn't possible to
create such fields using public APIs. The fix is trivial, so it seems
worth fixing this for custom m2m field users.

This is not a backport from master. Master has gotten enough other
changes to related fields internal API that this fix alone isn't enough
to do any good.
