Since commit 63d3578892dc ("crypto: pcrypt - remove padata cpumask
notifier") this feature is unused and may deliver unexpected data with
the introduction of struct padata_shell (a notification mask that
includes -ENOMEM), so get rid of it.

@@ -74,30 +74,6 @@  padata_set_cpumask is used to change just one of the cpumasks. Here cpumask_type
 is one of PADATA_CPU_SERIAL or PADATA_CPU_PARALLEL, and cpumask specifies the
 new cpumask to use.
 
-If a user is interested in padata cpumask changes, he can register to
-the padata cpumask change notifier::
-
-    int padata_register_cpumask_notifier(struct padata_instance *pinst,
-					 struct notifier_block *nblock);
-
-To unregister from that notifier::
-
-    int padata_unregister_cpumask_notifier(struct padata_instance *pinst,
-					   struct notifier_block *nblock);
-
-The padata cpumask change notifier notifies about changes of the usable
-cpumasks, i.e. the subset of active CPUs in the user supplied cpumask.
-
-Padata calls the notifier chain with::
-
-    blocking_notifier_call_chain(&pinst->cpumask_change_notifier,
-				 notification_mask,
-				 &pd_new->cpumask);
-
-Here cpumask_change_notifier is registered notifier, notification_mask
-is one of PADATA_CPU_SERIAL, PADATA_CPU_PARALLEL and cpumask is a pointer
-to a struct padata_cpumask that contains the new cpumask information.
-
 Actually submitting work to the padata instance requires the creation of a
 padata_priv structure::
