Subject[PATCH] profiling: Remove unused timer hook
Date
The last remaining user was oprofile and its use has been removed
a while ago on commit bc078e4eab65f11bbaeed380593ab8151b30d703
"oprofile: convert oprofile from timer_hook to hrtimer".

There doesn't seem to be any upstream user of this hook
for about two years now. And I'm not even aware of any out of tree
user.

Let's remove it.
