Missing method `report_web_vuln` results in various exceptions. #12334

Steps to reproduce

  1. run msfconsole
  2. load wmap
  3. Ensure you have a valid target
  4. Ensure that your target has vulnerabilities that wmap can discover

Expected behavior

wmap should be able to run the auxiliary/scanner/http/brute_dirs module without throwing exceptions related to the missing method report_web_vuln.

Current behavior

Currently, the following exceptions are thrown:

Auxiliary failed: NoMethodError undefined method `report_web_vuln' for #<Metasploit::Framework::DataService::RemoteHTTPDataService:0x00007fa1492f5610>
Call Stack:
  lib/metasploit/framework/data_service/proxy/core.rb:136:in `method_missing'
  lib/msf/core/auxiliary/report.rb:363:in `report_web_vuln'
  modules/auxiliary/scanner/http/brute_dirs.rb:164:in `block (3 levels) in run_host'


Auxiliary failed: NoMethodError undefined method `id' for nil:NilClass
Call stack:
  lib/msf/core/auxiliary/report.rb:295:in `report_vuln'
  modules/auxiliary/scanner/http/trace.rb:47:in `run_host'

Both exceptions occur because there's no report_web_vuln in lib/metasploit/framework/data_service/proxy/core.rb, which is called from lib/msf/core/auxiliary/report.rb (and possibly other places).
