[PATCH] Remove unused lgetxattr support from smbd

I was reviewing our xattr vfs stack in preparation for supporting the
posix:eadb format of xattr-in-a-tdb in smbd.  

This led me to check if I needed to implement all the calls, and a grep
and subsequent patches indicates that lgetxattr isn't called anywhere.
The attached patch removes this unused code. 

Can anyone think of a reason why we should keep this?  (I'm not really
bothered either way, but just wanted to reduce complexity before I
started my implementation work).
