Subject: mm: gup: remove FOLL_SPLIT

Since commit 5a52c9df62b4 ("uprobe: use FOLL_SPLIT_PMD instead of
FOLL_SPLIT") and commit ba925fa35057 ("s390/gmap: improve THP splitting")
FOLL_SPLIT has not been used anymore.  Remove the dead code.

-In case you can't handle compound pages if they're returned by
-follow_page, the FOLL_SPLIT bit can be specified as a parameter to
-follow_page, so that it will split the hugepages before returning
-them.
