ide: doc: remove compilation options section from ide-cd documentation
This section pointed out to compilation options which no longer exist. VERBOSE_IDE_CD_ERRORS has been replace by config option CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDECD_VERBOSE_ERRORS. STANDARD_ATAPI is no longer needed, since the non-standard drivers, which required bcd2bin are now detected, and there's a flag for them. NO_DOOR_LOCKING is now a sysctl parameter for cdrom drivers. CDROM_NBLOCKS_BUFFER is not used anymore. The READAUDIO is now in cdrom.c and it allocates as much as user space has requested to read, backing off if it fails. TEST is not there anymore or in cdrom either. ide allows to send ATA commands through ioctl, although it may be helpful to send MMC packets through the cdrom layer directly.

-There are a few additional options which can be set when compiling the

- If this is set, ATAPI error codes will be translated into textual
- descriptions. In addition, a dump is made of the command which
- provoked the error. This is off by default to save the memory used
- by the (somewhat long) table of error descriptions.
- If this is set, the code needed to deal with certain drives which do
- not properly implement the ATAPI spec will be disabled. If you know
- your drive implements ATAPI properly, you can turn this on to get a
- slightly smaller kernel.
- If this is set, the driver will never attempt to lock the door of
- the drive.
- This sets the size of the buffer to be used for a CDROMREADAUDIO

- This currently enables an additional ioctl which enables a user-mode
- program to execute an arbitrary packet command. See the source for
- details. This should be left off unless you know what you're doing.
