sys/pcpu.h: remove a workaround for a fixed ld bug
The workaround was incorrectly documented as having something to do with set_pcpu section's progbits, but in fact it was for incorrect placement of __start_set_pcpu because of the bug in ld. The bug was fixed in r210245, see commit message for details. A side-effect of the workaround was that a zero-size set_pcpu section was produced for modules, source code of which included pcpu.h but didn't actually define any dynamic per-cpu variables. This commit should remove the side-effect. The same workaround is present sys/net/vnet.h, has an analogous side-effect and can be removed as well. An UPDATING entry that warns about a need for recent ld is following. MFC after: 1 month
