drivers/interrupt_controller/mvic.c: remove MVIC interrupt controller

The Quark D2000 is the only x86 with an MVIC, and since support for
it has been dropped, the interrupt controller is orphaned. Removed.

There are some APIC variants (such as MVIC) where priorities cannot be set
by the user and the position in the vector table does correspond to the
IRQ line. Systems like this will enable CONFIG_X86_FIXED_IRQ_MAPPING.

On x86 when an interrupt or exception vector is executed by the CPU, there is

The MVIC (Intel Quark microcontroller D2000 Interrupt Controller) is

traditional IA LAPIC/IOAPIC, the interrupt vectors in MVIC are fixed and
not programmable. In addition, the priorities of these interrupt
lines are also fixed.
