[S390] vmcp: remove BKL

The vmcp driver uses the session->mutex for concurrent access of the data
structures. Therefore, the BKL in vmcp_open does not protect against any
other function in the driver.
The BLK in vmcp_open would protect concurrent access to the module init
but all necessary steps ave finished before misc_register is called.
We can safely remove the lock_kernel from vcmp.
