You add a bool Kconfig symbol. A week or two ago I saw some patches fly
by that - I think - allowed PCIe controllers to be built modular.

If you keep that symbol bool this objectfile will never be part of a

For built-in code this include is, probably, not needed.

For built-in code that macro will always be preprocessed away.

I think the module unload comment is a bit odd for built-in only code.

These three macros will be, basically, always preprocessed away as long
as this code can't be built to be modular.
