kbuild: error out on missing MODULE_LICENSE
Adrian Bunk suggested a build time check for missing MODULE_LICENSE annotation in modules. The build time check is fatal as we really want this fixed for all modules. In-tree modules should all have been fixed up by now. Signed-off-by: Sam Ravnborg <sam@ravnborg.org> Cc: Adrian Bunk <bunk@kernel.org>
