I think we should change both: make it possible to load the
driver dynamically, and remove the altera_pcie_remove function.

You can prevent the module from being unloaded if you also remove
the module_platform_driver() directive and add a module_init()
without a matching module_exit().

Please also add a '.suppress_bind_attrs = true,' flag in the driver
struct to prevent manual unbinding.
