Ah I see. We often get reports/patches if a driver has a removal
function but is defined in the Kconfig to only support being built-in.

Does the designware core just need to export some symbols to support it
being a module? If so it maybe worth adding these as part of the series
to see if it is acceptable, otherwise it might not get done and there is
no point us supporting it as a module.

Cheers
