still some remnants of pcmcia ioctl content lying around

  even though pcmcia ioctl support was(?) removed back here (although
the comment suggests only for ARM, which is strange):

    pcmcia: disable PCMCIA ioctl also for ARM

    As per a3f916f2c84f2b9e1d32cc0dbfe326a9e380dbfb, disable the long
    obsolete PCMCIA ioctl also for ARM.

  there are still remnants of pcmcia ioctl content sprinkled
throughout the source tree, like here:


    pcmcia-$(CONFIG_PCMCIA_IOCTL)    += pcmcia_ioctl.o

if that feature is really removed, all traces of it should be removed
as well.


p.s.  the pcmcia_ioctl.c source file is still there as well.
