Remove the blink driver
Yeah, we could have just disabled it, but there's work on a new one that isn't as fundamentally broken, so there really doesn't seem to be any point in keeping it around. The recent timer cleanup broke the only valid use, and when I say "valid", I obviously mean "totally broken". So it's not like it works, or really even can work in the current format that uses the unsafe "panic" LED blinking routines.. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

- Driver that when loaded will blink the keyboard LEDs continuously.
- This is useful for debugging and for kernels that cannot necessarily
- output something to the screen like kexec kernels to give the user
