Subject: [PATCH] phy: phy-exynos-pcie: make it explicitly non-modular

The Kconfig currently controlling compilation of this code is:

drivers/phy/Kconfig:config PHY_EXYNOS_PCIE
drivers/phy/Kconfig:    bool "Exynos PCIe PHY driver"

...meaning that it currently is not being built as a module by anyone.

Lets remove the couple traces of modular infrastructure use, so that
when reading the driver there is no doubt it is builtin-only.

Since module_platform_driver() uses the same init level priority as
builtin_platform_driver() the init ordering remains unchanged with
this commit.

Also note that MODULE_DEVICE_TABLE is a no-op for non-modular code.

We also delete the MODULE_LICENSE tag etc. since all that information
is already contained at the top of the file in the comments.

[ I'd normally not send patches in the merge window, but this driver
 just appeared in linux-next and so I'm assuming it is intended for
 addition during this merge window, hence we might as well fix it now.]
