[patch] mips-tdep.c: delete msymbol_size

Whoops, I left a loose edge in my last patch.

mips-tdep.c has a function msymbol_size which returns the size
of the symbol by extracting it from MSYMBOL_INFO.  Well, that
information is no longer in MSYMBOL_INFO!

Fortunately this msymbol_size is not actually called anywhere
so I'm just going to kill it instead of doing the trivial rewrite
Call the MSYMBOL_SIZE macro if you want this information
(and it's available only on elf, which is how it's always worked).

I also grepped all the other remaining uses of MSYMBOL_INFO
for similar problems.

I am committing this as an obvious fix.

Testing: I built a mips gdb, but didn't run the test suite.
