Because it is no longer needed.

And now that we have the non-recursive exec_binprm() called right
before free_bprm() it is obvious that it won't be used again.

OK. I will add it back. With the comment to explain that this is
only to catch the possible problems.

I guess it would be better if I resend the whole series to avoid
the confusion. I am going to add your acks. It seems that you acked
everything except 1/3 in the previous series, perhaps you can ack
it too?

Thanks for review!
