I think it should be safe to leave in kernel/sysctl_binary.c

This reminds me. I think we may finally be at a point where we can
remove practically all of kernel/sysctl_binary.c

I need to double check but last I looked no distro enables
COINFIG_SYSCTL_SYSCALL anymore. Ubunutu was the last distro I know of
that enabled it, and I think it has been a year or more since Ubuntu
