iqvlinux: remove package
This package contains a kernel module from Intel, which could only be used together with Intel userspace tools provided under NDA, which also come with the same kernel module. The copy of the kernel module available on SourceForge is only provided to comply with the GPLv2 requirement. Intel engineers were even surprised it even built and were not willing to make any effort to fix their tarball naming to contain a version number. Therefore, it does not make sense for Buildroot to provide such a package. See https://sourceforge.net/p/e1000/bugs/589/ for the discussion.
