No file includes this header. It has never been included since at least
v2.6.12-rc2. It can safely be removed.

1) One other (potential) cleanup that I discovered while looking at the
effects of removing this header can be found in
- outdated warning, referring to a header that (in short) got removed in
commit c36167de652f8acdf0b374c78805e662646cd327 ("ide: remove dead
- quite a bit of code depends on macros that seem to be never defined
anywhere (eg, LART_GREY_LCD).

So that code is in need of some cleaning up. But does anyone still care
about the LART related code? Especially that outdated warning suggests
this code has seriously bit rotted.

2) While I'm at it, I might as well add some more details on the history
of lart.h, which are not really relevant for the commit explanation (or
anything else, for that matter):
- it got added in v2.4.9-pre1 and was only included by
- its sole #include got removed in a patch called "[ARM] Clean up sa1100
hardware specific headers.". That patch got merged in release v2.5.47.
So it is actually unused since v2.5.47, ie it's unused for almost ten
