Subject: [PATCH v3] ext2: add warning when specifying nocheck option

The option nocheck(nocheck/check=none) is useless but considering
backwards compatibility it's better to print warning for a while
before completely remove from the code.

This patch add proper warning message for option 'nocheck' and
remove unnecessary comment/function declaration which is used for
removed option 'check'.

Signed-off-by: Chengguang Xu <cgxu519@....com>

v1->v2:
- Keep option nocheck as is and only add warning message.

v2->v3:
- Add specific deprecation schedule to warning message.
