Subject: [PATCH] ext4: Documenatation: remove acl and user_xattr mount options

Acl and user_xattr mount options are no longer needed since those
features are enabled by default if configured in (seee commit
ea6633369458992241599c9d9ebadffaeddec164). We can not easily
deprecate mount options itself (since it is probably too early),
but we can remove it from documentation first.
