configfs: remove old API

Remove the old show_attribute and store_attribute methods and update
the documentation.  Also replace the two C samples with a single new
one in the proper samples directory where people expect to find it.

[An Example]
The best example of these basic concepts is the simple_children
subsystem/group and the simple_child item in configfs_example_explicit.c
and configfs_example_macros.c. It shows a trivial object displaying and
storing an attribute, and a simple group creating and destroying these
children.
The only difference between configfs_example_explicit.c and
configfs_example_macros.c is how the attributes of the childless item
are defined. The childless item has extended attributes, each with
their own show()/store() operation. This follows a convention commonly
used in sysfs. configfs_example_explicit.c creates these attributes
by explicitly defining the structures involved. Conversely
configfs_example_macros.c uses some convenience macros from configfs.h
to define the attributes. These macros are similar to their sysfs
counterparts.
