V4L/DVB (5407a): Update feature-removal-schedule.txt: remove VIDIOC_S/G_MPEGCOMP
Those two experimental APIs never worked fine nor, afaik, were implemented at the apps. Their functionalities were implemented by other means. So, let's remove those obsolete stuff. Signed-off-by: Hans Verkuil <hverkuil@xs4all.nl> Signed-off-by: Mauro Carvalho Chehab <mchehab@infradead.org>

---------------------------
+What: V4L2 VIDIOC_G_MPEGCOMP and VIDIOC_S_MPEGCOMP
+When: October 2007
+Why: Broken attempt to set MPEG compression parameters. These ioctls are
+ not able to implement the wide variety of parameters that can be set
+ by hardware MPEG encoders. A new MPEG control mechanism was created
+ in kernel 2.6.18 that replaces these ioctls. See the V4L2 specification
+ (section 1.9: Extended controls) for more information on this topic.
+Who: Hans Verkuil <hverkuil@xs4all.nl> and
