md: remove the 'super' sysfs attribute from devices in an 'md' array
NeilBrown [Thu, 20 Mar 2008 00:00:44 +0000 (17:00 -0700)]
Exposing the binary blob which is the md 'super-block' via sysfs doesn't
really fit with the whole sysfs model, and ever since commit
8118a859dc7abd873193986c77a8d9bdb877adc8 ("sysfs: fix off-by-one error
in fill_read_buffer()") it doesn't actually work at all (as the size of
the blob is often one page).

(akpm: as in, fs/sysfs/file.c:fill_read_buffer() goes BUG)

So just remove it altogether.  It isn't really useful.
