The function hlist_bl_del_init_rcu() is declared in rculist_bl.h,
but never used.  This commit therefore removes it.

- * Note: hlist_bl_unhashed() on the node returns true after this. It is
- * useful for RCU based read lockfree traversal if the writer side
- * must know if the list entry is still hashed or already unhashed.
- *
- * In particular, it means that we can not poison the forward pointers
- * that may still be used for walking the hash list and we can only
- * zero the pprev pointer so list_unhashed() will return true after
- * this.
- *
- * The caller must take whatever precautions are necessary (such as
- * holding appropriate locks) to avoid racing with another
- * list-mutation primitive, such as hlist_bl_add_head_rcu() or
- * hlist_bl_del_rcu(), running on this same list.  However, it is
- * perfectly legal to run concurrently with the _rcu list-traversal
- * primitives, such as hlist_bl_for_each_entry_rcu().
