Subject: [PATCH 23/23] sysctl: Remove the last of the generic binary sysctl support

From: Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm@...ssion.com>

Now that all of the users stopped using ctl_name and strategy it
is safe to remove the fields from struct ctl_table, and it is safe
to remove the stub strategy routines as well.
