Subject: [PATCH] Documentation: kernel-docs: Move vfs.txt under "Docs at the Linux Kernel tree"

It's unnecessary to point to an external mirror of the Documentation
directory. Also, drop the date field, because in-kernel documentation is
continually updated.

Alternatively, we might drop this entry of the list entirely, because
Documentation/ is already covered.
