If you just remove it, you don't slam the door on anything. We can add
it back the moment we've got a use for it.
We have a common routine for printing vector registers; I would prefer
using "info vector" instead of extending "info powerpc".
How on earth did these tests get added to the FSF sources without the
command they're testing? Ah-hah, they didn't. This is why repository
history and ChangeLogs are so useful.

* rs6000-tdep.c (altivec_register_p): Delete.
(_initialize_rs6000_tdep): Remove command 'info powerpc altivec'.
(rs6000_gdbarch_init): Remove setting of do_registers_info.
It was Elena's goal to get rid of 'info powerpc altivec'; she just
didn't update the testsuite, apparently.
