Ref: curl#10163

- This is a niche TLS library, only running on some IBM systems
- no regular curl contributors use this backend
- no CI builds use or verify this backend
- gskit, or the curl adaption for it, lacks many modern TLS features
  making it an inferior solution
- build breakages in this code take weeks or more to get detected
- fixing gskit code is mostly done "flying blind"

Closes curl#10201
