[PATCH] remove verify_area(): remove fs/umsdos/notes as it only contain a 
verify_area related note

The file `fs/umsdos/notes' contains only a small note about a possible bug
involving verify_area().  Since umsdos is no longer in the kernel and
verify_area() is also gone, it seems to make sense that this file goes the way
of the Dodo.

After applying this patch the `fs/umsdos/' directory will be empty and can be
removed entirely.

-       There is a call the verify_area that does not take in account
-       the count parameter. I guess it should read
-       error = verify_area(VERIFY_WRITE, dirent, count*sizeof (*dirent));
-       instead of
-       error = verify_area(VERIFY_WRITE, dirent, sizeof (*dirent));
-       Of course, now , count is always 1
