gpio: timberdale: make it explicitly non-modular

This change “gpio: timberdale: make it explicitly non-modular” (commit 52ad905) in Linux kernel is authored by Paul Gortmaker <paul.gortmaker [at] windriver.com> on Mon May 9 19:59:57 2016 -0400.

Description of "gpio: timberdale: make it explicitly non-modular"

The change “gpio: timberdale: make it explicitly non-modular” introduces changes as follows.

gpio: timberdale: make it explicitly non-modular

The Kconfig currently controlling compilation of this code is:

drivers/gpio/Kconfig:config GPIO_TIMBERDALE
drivers/gpio/Kconfig:   bool "Support for timberdale GPIO IP"

...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.

We explicitly disallow a driver unbind, since that doesn't have a
sensible use case anyway, and it allows us to drop the ".remove"
code for non-modular drivers.

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 the MODULE_LICENSE tag etc. since all that information
was (or is now) contained at the top of the file in the comments.
