V4L/DVB: videotext: remove this obsolete API
Remove the vtx (aka videotext aka teletext) API from the v4l2 core. This API was scheduled for removal in kernel 2.6.35. The vtx device nodes have been superseded by vbi device nodes for many years. No applications exist that use the vtx support. Of the two i2c drivers that actually support this API the saa5249 has been impossible to use for a year now and no known hardware that supports this device exists. The saa5246a is theoretically supported by the old mxb boards, but it never actually worked. In summary: there is no hardware that can use this API and there are no applications actually implementing this API. The vtx support still reserves minors 192-223 and we would really like to reuse those for upcoming new functionality. In the unlikely event that new hardware appears that wants to use the functionality provided by the vtx API, then that functionality should be build around the sliced VBI API instead.
