[arch-dev-public] Dropping sysvinit-tools

The next release of procps-ng will contain pidof and clash with
sysvinit-tools. The obvious decision is to use the maintained source of
pidof. At this point, we'll be left with 3 binaries in sysvinit-tools,
all which I propose are all obsolete: fstab-decode, killall5, and bootlogd.

I'm open to arguments against this, but I suggest we drop sysvinit-tools
after pidof is part of a release from procps-ng.
