Remove NAND and NANDFS support
NANDFS has been broken for years. Remove it. The NAND drivers that remain are for ancient parts that are no longer relevant. They are polled, have terrible performance and just for ancient arm hardware. NAND parts have evolved significantly from this early work and little to none of it would be relevant should someone need to update to support raw nand. This code has been off by default for years and has violated the vnode protocol leading to panics since it was committed. Numerous posts to arch@ and other locations have found no actual users for this software. Relnotes: Yes No Objection From: arch@ Differential Revision: https://reviews.freebsd.org/D20745

-.Os
-.Sh NAME
-.Nm nandsim
-.Nd NAND Flash simulator driver
-.Sh SYNOPSIS
-.Cd "device nand"
-.Cd "device nandsim"
-.Cd "options ALQ"
-.Sh DESCRIPTION
-The
-.Nm
-is part of the
-.Fx
-NAND framework
-.Xr nand 4
-and can be characterized with the following highlights:
-.Bl -bullet
-.It
-plugs into the
-.Xr nand 4
-framework APIs as if it were a hardware controller (hanging on the nexus bus)
-with real NAND chips connected to it
-.It
-physically part of the kernel code (either statically linked into the kernel
-image or built as a module)
-.It
-controlled with a user space program
-.Xr nandsim 8
-.El
-.Pp
-From the user perspective, the
-.Nm
-allows for imitating ONFI-compliant NAND Flash devices as if they were
-attached to the system via a virtual controller.
-.Pp
-Some
-.Nm
-features rely on the ability to log contents to a file, which is achieved
-through the
-.Xr alq 9
-facility.
-.Sh SEE ALSO

-.Sh HISTORY
-The
-.Nm
-support first appeared in
-.Fx 10.0 .

-.An -nosplit
-The
-.Nm
-kernel driver was developed by
