SubjectRe: No sysfs directory for openvswitch module when built-in

We only know built-in "modules" exist if we see a parameter or version
which mention them. Looking for /sys/module/openvswitch/ is almost as
flawed as looking in /proc/modules.

I hacked up something which lists KBUILD_MODNAME for every element in my
kernel which did EXPORT_KERNEL or module_init, and most of them can
never be modules, though any could have parameters. Even if we changed
the build system so we could tell things which "could have been a
module", it's silly.

In summary, you really need to test features, not presence of modules.
