Subject[PATCH] module: Fix compile error for ref_module when CONFIG_MODULES is not set
ref_module function is not defined when CONFIG_MODULES is not set thus
it causes compile error when a module which is set to be built-in uses it.
This patch defines a dummy ref_module function when CONFIG_MODULES
is not set.
