SLOF implements one itself so let's remove it from QEMU. It is one less

This totally depends on https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/1132440/ ,
hence RFC.

Patch looks basically fine for me, but I wonder whether we should wait
for one or two releases until we really remove it from QEMU, so that it
is still possible to test the latest QEMU with older SLOF releases for a
while (which is sometimes useful when hunting bugs). Or should this
maybe even go through the official deprecation process (i.e. with an
entry in qemu-deprecated.texi)?

I worry more about slof being distributed as a separate package in RHEL, easy enough to get qemu/slof out of sync.
