Subject: [RFC PATCH resend 6/6] mm: remove now-unused mmdrop_async()

The preceding patches have removed all users of mmdrop_async(); get rid of
it.

Note that on MMU, we still need async_put_work because mmput_async() uses
it, which in turn is used by binder's shrinker callback. We could claw back
those 4 words per mm if we made mmput_async() depend on
CONFIG_ANDROID_BINDER_IPC.
