[PATCH 1/2] cifs: remove unused status severity defines

Since this file (smb2status.h) is intended to track the official
protocol documentation (albeit smb2status.h probably needs to be
updated), in this case the protocol document MS-ERREF.  I would prefer
to keep it closer to MS-ERREF and leave definitions in even if unused
(if nothing else it helps some of us when debugging to recognize what
these errors on the wire mean).  There is a real danger that we have
run into in the past that in removing some protocol definitions
(flags, etc.) from the code or forgetting to update our headers to
match newer versions of the protocol specifications, that  with future
code changes we can forget to handle flags (for example) or misparse
responses due to not realizing that there are additional flags that
need to be parsed.
