Subject: [PATCH 10/11] drivers: staging: rtl8723bs: remove unneeded MODULE_VERSION() call

Remove MODULE_VERSION(), as it doesn't seem to have any pratical purpose.
The code received lots of huge changes, but module version remained constant,
since it landed in mainline tree, back 11 years go. Unmaintained version
numbers aren't actually useful. For in-tree drivers, the kernel version
really matters.
