There is code in the tree for the Vibration API guarded by ENABLE(VIBRATION). I 
propose we remove it:
<https://webkit.org/b/171766> Remove Vibration API

There have been concerns that the Vibration API can be used for fingerprinting 
and has the potential for abuse by web content:

<https://github.com/w3c/vibration/issues/2 
<https://github.com/w3c/vibration/issues/2>>

Currently this feature is not enabled by any port, so it is unmaintained. 
Generally that would be enough to remove the code unless a port wishes to 
enable and maintain the feature.

Does any port intend to enable and maintain this feature?
