Subject[PATCH 0/9] s390: remove modular usage from non-modular code
My ongoing audit looking for non-modular code that needlessly uses
modular macros (vs. built-in equivalents) and/or has dead code
relating to module unloading that can never be executed led to the
creation of these s390 related commits.

For anyone new to the underlying goal of this cleanup, we are trying to
not use module support for code that can never be built as a module since:

(1) it is easy to accidentally write unused module_exit and remove code
(2) it can be misleading when reading the source, thinking it can be
modular when the Makefile and/or Kconfig prohibit it
(3) it requires the include of the module.h header file which in turn
includes nearly everything else, thus adding to CPP overhead.
(4) it gets copied/replicated into other code and spreads like weeds.

Build tested on current linux-next (allyes/allno/allmod) to ensure no
silly typos or implicit include issues that would break compilation
crept in.
