Remove "cephfs" CLI
IIRC we talked about this in standup the other day, and this pull request (https://github.com/ceph/ceph/pull/9338) reminded me: let's remove the old cephfs CLI tool (src/cephfs.cc) that uses ioctls for setting layouts.
The message telling users the tool was deprecated was added in July 2014:
commit af740ecd498e73ae9c5101ae7ba377be6fd8f2eb Author: John Spray <email@example.com> Date: Tue Jul 15 12:45:34 2014 +0100 cephfs: pool safety & print deprecation warning Print a message indicating to users that this tool is now deprecated in favour of vxattrs.

After the cephfs tool is dropped, mount.ceph will be the only thing remaining in the (deb-only) "ceph-fs-common" package.
The cephfs-data-scan, cephfs-journal-tool, and cephfs-table-tool utilies were placed in ceph-common, maybe we should move mount.ceph there, too, to align the deb packaging with rpm?
Then the ceph-fs-common package could be dropped.

For additional info, quoting Sage from an internal RH bug (sorry this is restricted, not sure why. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/1205497)
Sage Weil 2015-03-25 13:55:52 EDT In debian-land we have ceph-fs-common, which contains /usr/bin/cephfs (deprecated, need to remove) and mount.ceph. In rpm-land they are part of the main ceph package. I think we should just move mount.ceph into ceph-common and kill ceph-fs-common for debian and be done with it
