This note hasn't got much to do with the driver code itself. Either you
want to enable compiling the driver as a module, then use tristate
instead of bool; or it isn't an option and then remove the corresponding
paragraph from the documentation. The latter is improbable, and a
quick look at the code seems to confirm that the driver was actually
intended to be used as a module. So I suggest replacing bool with
tristate. But I don't know anything at all about this driver or device.
