Future of liblockdep

From: Ben Hutchings

liblockdep hasn't been buildable since (I think) Linux 4.6. I sent
Sasha fixes for that last June and he included these in a pull request
to Ingo, but somehow they never reached mainline. Linux 4.8 broke
liblockdep further, and I gave up packaging it for Debian.

There have been no other changes to liblockdep since then, other than a
general change in the tools/ directory. Sasha's address in MAINTAINERS
is also out-of-date.

Please either maintain liblockdep properly or delete it. We shouldn't
keep code in the tree in a broken state.
