x86/mm/mtrr: Remove kernel internal MTRR interfaces: unexport mtrr_add() and mtrr_del()
The effort to replace mtrr_add() with architecture agnostic arch_phys_wc_add() is complete, this will ensure write-combining implementations (PAT on x86) is taken advantage instead of using MTRR. With the effort done now, hide direct MTRR access for drivers. The legacy user-space /proc/mtrr ABI is not affected. Update x86 documentation on MTRR to reflect the completion of the phasing out of direct access to MTRR, also add a note on platform firmware code use of MTRRs based on the obituary discussion of MTRRs on Linux [0].
