[PATCH] Documentation: Remove reference to acpi_platform_device_ids from acpi/enumeration

From: Darren Hart

As of:

4845934 ACPI / scan: use platform bus type by default for _HID enumeration

ACPI uses the platform bus by default, changing the opt-in to an opt-out
policy, eliminating the acpi_platform_device_ids table and replacing it
with forbidden_id_list[].

Remove the qualifying paragraph from the acpi/enumeration documentation
as it no longer applies.
