So I think this MODULE_ALIAS() is only useful if, in short, there's a
corresponding platform_device created. Ie, a platform_device with a
name "xilinx-mailbox" that will fire of a "MODALIAS=platform:xilinx
-mailbox" when it's created.

I couldn't spot such a platform_device. Provided git grep didn't let me
down here: what breaks if this line is dropped?
