Remove unused support code for refok sections.
The old refok sections .text.init.refok .data.init.refok .exit.text.refok have been deprecated since commit 312b1485fb509c9bc32eda28ad29537896658cb8. After the other patches in this patch series nothing is put in these sections, so clean things up by eliminating all the remaining references to them.
