Please review the following change.

Summary: This is a parfait bug concerning a possible buffer overflow 
when using '%s' in fscanf().  However, the entire block of code 
containing the fscanf() is for older versions of Linux that are no 
longer supported.  So, the block of code can just be deleted.

Open webrev:

The changes were tested with JPRT, JCK Lang and VM tests, UTE tests, and 
with JTREG tests.  Also, the api/javax_management tests were run with 
the UseLinuxPoisxThreadCPUClocks flag explicitly turned on and off.

Thanks!  Harold
