Subject[PATCH 13/22] mfd: syscon: Make it explicitly non-modular
The Kconfig currently controlling compilation of this code is:

drivers/mfd/Kconfig:config MFD_SYSCON
drivers/mfd/Kconfig: bool "System Controller Register R/W Based on Regmap"

...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_init was not in use by this code, the init ordering
remains unchanged with this commit.

We also delete the MODULE_LICENSE tag etc. since all that information
is already contained at the top of the file in the comments.
