[PATCH] media: atomisp: stop compiling compat_ioctl32 code

This is one of the last remaining users of compat_alloc_user_space()
and copy_in_user(), which are in the process of getting removed.

As of commit 57e6b6f2303e ("media: atomisp_fops.c: disable
atomisp_compat_ioctl32"), nothing in this file is actually getting used
as the only reference has been stubbed out.

Do the same thing here and stub out the implementation as well while
leaving it in place, with a comment explaining the problem.

Alternatively, the entire file could just be removed, since anyone
willing to restore the functionality can equally well just look up
the contents in the git history if needed.
