The Kconfig for this driver is currently:

config BRCMSTB_GISB_ARB
        bool "Broadcom STB GISB bus arbiter"

...meaning that it currently is not being built as a module by anyone.
Lets remove all modular references, so that when reading the driver
there is no doubt it is builtin-only.

Since module_init translates to device_initcall in the non-modular
case, the init ordering remains unchanged with this commit.

I think this driver probably doesn't make too much sense as a module
anyway (among other things, we can't hook the ARM fault handler beyond
init time, as it's marked __init). So:

Acked-by: Brian Norris <computersforpeace@gmail.com>

Might be good to get Florian's ack though, as I'm not using this
platform any more.
