docs: fb: Remove sstfb scrollback boot option
In commit 50145474f6ef ("fbcon: remove soft scrollback code"), the framebuffer scrollback mode was removed, but the documentation was not updated. Properly update the documentation by removing the option that is no longer present i.e remove a stanza related to scrollback.
