[PATCH] synclink: remove dead code
Remove dead code from synclink driver. This was used previously when the write method had a from_user flag, which has been removed. Signed-off-by: Paul Fulghum <paulkf@microgate.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
