The Kconfig currently controlling compilation of this code is:

drivers/pci/host/Kconfig:config PCI_RCAR_GEN2_PCIE
drivers/pci/host/Kconfig:       bool "Renesas R-Car PCIe controller"

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

Lets remove the modular code that is essentially orphaned, 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 don't have to disallow a driver unbind, since that is already
done for us in this driver.

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
was (or is now) contained at the top of the file in the comments.

The MODULE_* tags are easier to parse by automated tools.
Do we want to make the work of e.g. the SPDX people harder?

Gr{oetje,eeting}s,

As JoeP pointed out, the AUTHOR tags are routinely out of date
and not used by get_maintainer.pl by default, and I've found a
lot of LICENCE tags that say GPL while the text at the top says
GPLv2.  On top of that, they are not present all the time since
proper non-modular drivers don't have them.  So, no I have no
problems whatsoever in removing them from non-modular code.

If you want to make the case for tags that are module/non-module
agnostic, and you think there is genuine value in it and you can
get buy in on that, then feel free.

Paul.
