Revert "PCI: create function symlinks in /sys/bus/pci/slots/N/"
This reverts commit 75568f8094eb0333e9c2109b23cbc8b82d318a3c. Since they're just a convenience anyway, remove these symlinks since they're causing duplicate filename errors in the wild. Acked-by: Alex Chiang <achiang@canonical.com> Signed-off-by: Jesse Barnes <jbarnes@virtuousgeek.org>

- When the appropriate driver is loaded, it will create a
- directory per claimed physical PCI slot in
- /sys/bus/pci/slots/. The names of these directories are
- specific to the driver, which in turn, are specific to the
- platform, but in general, should match the label on the
- machine's physical chassis.
- The drivers that can create slot directories include the
- PCI hotplug drivers, and as of 2.6.27, the pci_slot driver.
- The slot directories contain, at a minimum, a file named
- 'address' which contains the PCI bus:device:function tuple.
- Other files may appear as well, but are specific to the
- driver.

- symbolic links in the slot directory pointing to the
