Subject: [PATCH v7 10/10] arch/x86: Remove efi_set_rtc_mmss()

efi_set_rtc_mmss() is never used to set RTC due to bugs found
on many EFI platforms. It is set directly by mach_set_rtc_mmss().
Hence, remove unused efi_set_rtc_mmss() function.

Signed-off-by: Daniel Kiper <daniel.kiper@...cle.com>

v6 - suggestions/fixes:
   - remove efi_set_rtc_mmss() instead of commenting out it
     (suggested by Stefano Stabellini, Juergen Gross,
     H. Peter Anvin and Matt Fleming).
