sysfs: kill sysfs_update_file()



sysfs_update_file() depends on inode->i_mtime but sysfs iondes are now
reclaimable making the reported modification time unreliable.  There's
only one user (pci hotplug) of this notification mechanism and it
reportedly isn't utilized from userland.

Kill sysfs_update_file().
