As I said in my reply to your pr where you proposed to remove that code and 
move it
into userland:

 Which will make the normal kernel output during boot time or the dmesg
 output not so easy to read if you only see numbers and not names in it.
 Especially for hardware which has no driver.
(Additional note: You still see the vendor for new hardware if his id is
in the database.)

What is the reason why you want to remove this option?
You can still comment this option out of your kernel config if you want
a smaller kernel.
