After 7e8e385aaf6e ("x86/compat: Remove sys32_vm86_warning"), this
function has become unused, so we can remove it as well.

How do we know we can simply remove /proc/sys/kernel/compat-log without
breaking any userspace?

Good point. I guess we can leave this in place just in case (with a comment)
and just remove the compat_printk function. We could probably have a Kconfig
symbol for obsolete sysctl files, but if this is the only one controlled
by it, it's probably not worth the effort.

It probably makes sense to print a deprecation warning containing the current
process name if this /proc file is modified, so that users can update any
scripts/tools using it.

Cheers, Andreas
