xip sendfile removal
This patch removes xip_file_sendfile, the sendfile implementation for xip without replacement. Those customers that use xip on s390 are not using sendfile() as far as we know, and so far s390 is the only platform this could potentially be used on so far. Having sendfile is not a popular feature for execute in place file systems, however we have a working implementation of splice_read() based on fs/splice.c if anyone asks for it. At this point in time, it does not seem preferable to merge splice_read() for xip because it causes extra maintenence effort due to code duplication and it requires struct page behind the xip memory segment. We'd like to get rid of that in favor of supporting flash based embedded platforms (Monta Vista work) soon.
