x86: remove iBCS support
ibcs2 support has never been supported on 2.6 kernels as far as I know, and if it has it must have been an external patch. Anyways, if anybody applies an external patch they could as well readd the ibcs checking code to the ELF loader in the same patch. But there is no reason to keep this code running in all Linux kernels. This will save at least two strcmps each ELF execution. No deprecation period because it could not have been used anyway.
