Update Infocenter to remove sections, commands, etc pertaining to options no longer available

Check out the comments at the bottom of:

It just needs some serious updating.


Use Case:

Avoid confusion trying things no longer supported.

    I see that most references to CRTDEVDKT are removed but there is still a link to it at
    https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/ssw_ibm_i_74/rzaks/rzaksoutputsp.htm
    And, the command CRTDEVDKT still exists at 7.4 but should probably be removed since I do not believe that any model of Power System capable of supporting 7.4 will support diskette drives.

    Documents will be updated after function updated, this depends on https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/rfe/execute?use_case=viewRfe&CR_ID=122094.

    In my opinion, this is not an RFE, but a task / duty of IBM to remove / correct obsolete or incorrect commands, descriptions, instructions from their KnowledgeCenter.
