kernel/resource.c: remove deprecated __check_region() and friends
All users of __check_region(), check_region(), and check_mem_region() are gone. We got rid of the last user in v4.0-rc1. Remove them. bloat-o-meter on x86_64 shows: add/remove: 0/3 grow/shrink: 0/0 up/down: 0/-102 (-102) function old new delta __kstrtab___check_region 15 - -15 __ksymtab___check_region 16 - -16 __check_region 71 - -71 Signed-off-by: Jakub Sitnicki <jsitnicki@gmail.com> Cc: Bjorn Helgaas <bhelgaas@google.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
