kbuild: drop shared library support from Makefile.host
The shared library feature in Makefile.host is no longer used. Rip it off to keep the build infrastucture simple. Update Documentation/kbuild/makefiles.txt too. The section "4.3 Definition shared libraries" should be removed and the following sections should be re-numbered.

---- 4.3 Defining shared libraries
-
- Objects with extension .so are considered shared libraries, and
- will be compiled as position independent objects.
- Kbuild provides support for shared libraries, but the usage
- shall be restricted.
- In the following example the libkconfig.so shared library is used
- to link the executable conf.
-
- Example:
- #scripts/kconfig/Makefile
- hostprogs-y := conf
- conf-objs := conf.o libkconfig.so
- libkconfig-objs := expr.o type.o
-
- Shared libraries always require a corresponding -objs line, and
- in the example above the shared library libkconfig is composed by
- the two objects expr.o and type.o.
- expr.o and type.o will be built as position independent code and
- linked as a shared library libkconfig.so. C++ is not supported for
- shared libraries.
