This adds a bool symbol.

Which means pl353-smc.o can never be part of a module, right?

(If that's not right you can stop reading here.)

This states the license is GPL v2 or later.

I wonder whether this include is needed, since this is built-in only
code.

According to include/linux/module.h this will be preprocessed away for
built-in code.

THIS_MODULE will be equivalent to NULL for built-in code, according to
include/linux/export.h.

Speaking from memory: for built-in only code this is equivalent to
having a wrapper that only does
register_platform_driver(&pl353_smc_driver);

and mark that wrapper with device_initcall().

For built-in only code these macros will be effectively preprocessed
away.

(Would you make PL353_SMC a tristate symbol then you should note that
according to include/linux/module.h "GPL" is the license ident that
matches the license stated in the comment at the top of this file.)

Thanks,
