Hrrm. AFAICT the token CONFIG_ISAPNP_MODULE will never be defined. :-)

Regardless, we can just toss the #ifdefs altogether. They aren't strictly
required as appropriate stubs exist in linux/isapnp.h and that is what
they are there for. (I'd recommend this for 2.5, not 2.4 though.)

Granted, the CONFIG_ISAPNP buys you a slight reduction in driver
size (even over the stubs) which somewhat seemed worthwhile in the
past. But most of it is __init anyway, and for 2.5 I'd argue that the
readability and lack of ifdefs outweighs the slight size change.
