ieee1394: schedule *_oui sysfs attributes for removal



There is no manpower available to reform oui.db into a library for use
in more kernel subsystems.  The low ratio of usefulness to size and the
occasional need to update oui.db from IEEE's official list suggest to
drop oui.db.  I plan to make a userspace script available which
translates the remaining numeric sysfs attributes to names of
organizations.
