kbuild: remove unused OBJSIZE
The "size" tool has been solely used by s390 to enforce .bss section usage restrictions in early startup code. Since commit 980d5f9ab36b ("s390/boot: enable .bss section for compressed kernel") and commit 2e83e0eb85ca ("s390: clean .bss before running uncompressed kernel") these restrictions have been lifted for the decompressor and uncompressed kernel and the size tool is now unused.
