This is to remove an obsoleted code where it causes drastic
performance degradation. This code is written before PERM lock
is introduced, and it requests UPDATE lock at path walk for
remote directory, which will be cancelled at later file creation.

Tests result before and after this patch is applied:

Test case:
rm -rf /mnt/lustre_purple/testdir
lfs mkdir -i 0 /mnt/lustre_purple/testdir
lfs mkdir -i 2 /mnt/lustre_purple/testdir/dir2
./lustre-release/lustre/tests/createmany -o \
        /mnt/lustre_purple/testdir/dir2/f 10000

Before the patch is applied:
total: 10000 open/close in 12.82 seconds: 780.22 ops/second

After the patch is applied:
total: 10000 open/close in 4.89 seconds: 2044.75 ops/second
