sysdump: Remove README that was for memdump, not sysdump
Sysdump was forked from memdump, but the README was never fixed. It should be updated, but until then, delete it. Signed-off-by: H. Peter Anvin <hpa@zytor.com>

-This is a very simple COM32 program which can be used to dump memory
-regions over a serial port. To use it, type on the SYSLINUX command
-line:
-
-memdump <port> <prefix> <start>,<len> <start>,<len>...
-
-For example:
-
-memdump 0 funnysystem- 0,0x600 0x9fc00,0x400 0xf0000,0x10000
-
-... dumps three memory ranges (the standard BIOS memory ranges, often
-useful) onto serial port 0. The <port> can either be in the range 0-3
-for the standard BIOS serial port, or the I/O address of the UART.
-
-The data is transferred using the YMODEM protocol; the Unix
-implementation of this protocol is called "rb" and is part of the
-"lrzsz" (or "rzsz") package. If one uses a terminal program like
-Minicom, there is often a way to invoke it from inside the terminal
-program; in Minicom, this is done with the Ctrl-A R control sequence.
