[PATCH] drm/ssd130x: Only define a SPI device ID table when built as a module

The kernel test robot reports a compile warning due the ssd130x_spi_table
variable being defined but not used. This happen when ssd130x-spi driver
is built-in instead of being built as a module, i.e:

  CC      drivers/gpu/drm/solomon/ssd130x-spi.o
  AR      drivers/base/firmware_loader/built-in.a
  AR      drivers/base/built-in.a
  CC      kernel/trace/trace.o
drivers/gpu/drm/solomon/ssd130x-spi.c:155:35: warning: ‘ssd130x_spi_table’ defined but not used [-Wunused-const-variable=]
  155 | static const struct spi_device_id ssd130x_spi_table[] = {
      |                                   ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The driver shouldn't need a SPI device ID table and only have an OF device
ID table, but the former is needed to workaround an issue in the SPI core.
This always reports a MODALIAS of the form "spi:<device>" even for devices
registered through Device Trees.

But the table is only needed when the driver built as a module to populate
the .ko alias info. It's not needed when the driver is built-in the kernel.
