Yeah, if the commit is no longer valid, then we should drop this line
and perhaps generalize the commit message more, maybe something like
"provide a stub for within_module() to prevent build errors when
!CONFIG_MODULES".

Tri, if you plan on sending a v2, could you add Nick's suggestion
above? Would probably be good to prevent future build errors if a user
omits CONFIG_MODULE guards.

Thanks,
