Subject: [PATCH-next] reset: brcmstb: make it explicitly non-modular

The Kconfig currently controlling compilation of this code is:

drivers/reset/Kconfig:  bool "Broadcom STB reset controller" if COMPILE_TEST
drivers/reset/Kconfig:  default ARCH_BRCMSTB

...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.

We also delete no-op MODULE_LICENSE tag etc. since all that information
is already contained at the top of the file in the comments.

[Driver just recently appeared in linux-next - if rebasing, feel free
 to squash this change into the original commit. Or make it tristate?]
