Subject: [PATCH 3/6] x86/cpu: proc - remove "wp" status line in cpuinfo

As of commit a5c2a893dbd4 ("x86, 386 removal: Remove
CONFIG_X86_WP_WORKS_OK") the kernel won't boot if CR0.WP isn't working
correctly. This makes a process reading this file always see "wp : yes"
here -- otherwise there would be no process to begin with ;)

As this status line in /proc/cpuinfo serves no purpose for quite some
time now, get rid of it.
