ipc/util: drop ipc_rcu_alloc()
No callers remain for ipc_rcu_alloc(). Drop the function. [manfred@colorfullife.com: Rediff because the memset was temporarily inside ipc_rcu_free()] Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/20170525185107.12869-13-manfred@colorfullife.com Signed-off-by: Kees Cook <keescook@chromium.org> Signed-off-by: Manfred Spraul <manfred@colorfullife.com> Cc: Kees Cook <keescook@chromium.org> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
