mm: remove broken 'kzalloc' mempool

The kzalloc mempool zeros items when they are initially allocated, but
does not rezero used items that are returned to the pool.  Consequently
mempool_alloc()s may return non-zeroed memory.

Since there are/were only two in-tree users for
mempool_create_kzalloc_pool(), and 'fixing' this in a way that will
re-zero used (but not new) items before first use is non-trivial, just
remove it.
