[PATCH 6/6] Remove completely unused libio flag bits.

These macros are used literally nowhere in the source tree, and all
of them appear to relate to the C++ functionality of the original
libio that never got taken into glibc in the first place.  I also
reformatted the first set of flags to make it really obvious which
bits are not used (there's one bit that never gets set by current
code but might get set by old code).

This is as far as I propose to go in this patchset.  The next most
pressing changes are to eliminate _IO_MTSAFE_IO and to start removing
support for deprecated-but-exported _IO_ symbols, and both of those I
believe Florian has already been working on, so I'll leave them to

	* libio/libio.h (_IOS_ATEND, _IOS_APPEND, _IOS_TRUNC)
	(_IO_DONT_CLOSE, _IO_BOOLALPHA): Remove, unused.
	(_IO_BAD_SEEN): Comment out but leave as documentation.
	Reformat bit flags for _flags field to make occupancy clearer.
	Update commentary.
	* libio/bits/types/struct_FILE.h (_IO_EOF_SEEN, _IO_ERR_SEEN):
	Keep definitions consistent with those in libio/libio.h.
