Subject: [PATCH] vfio: Drop vfio_file_iommu_group() stub to fudge around a KVM wart

Drop the vfio_file_iommu_group() stub and instead unconditionally declare
the function to fudge around a KVM wart where KVM tries to do symbol_get()
on vfio_file_iommu_group() (and other VFIO symbols) even if CONFIG_VFIO=n.

Ensuring the symbol is always declared fixes a PPC build error when
modules are also disabled, in which case symbol_get() simply points at the
address of the symbol (with some attributes shenanigans).  Because KVM
does symbol_get() instead of directly depending on VFIO, the lack of a
fully defined symbol is not problematic (ugly, but "fine").

   arch/powerpc/kvm/../../../virt/kvm/vfio.c:89:7:
   error: attribute declaration must precede definition [-Werror,-Wignored-attributes]
           fn = symbol_get(vfio_file_iommu_group);
                ^
   include/linux/module.h:805:60: note: expanded from macro 'symbol_get'
   #define symbol_get(x) ({ extern typeof(x) x __attribute__((weak,visibility("hidden"))); &(x); })

   2 errors generated.

Although KVM is firmly in the wrong (there is zero reason for KVM to build
virt/kvm/vfio.c when VFIO is disabled), fudge around the error in VFIO as
the stub is unnecessary and doesn't serve its intended purpose (KVM is the
only external user of vfio_file_iommu_group()), and there is an in-flight
series to clean up the entire KVM<->VFIO interaction, i.e. fixing this in
KVM would result in more churn in the long run, and the stub needs to go
away regardless.
