Recently, commit 440bcc59 added a reverse dependency to fs/Kconfig to
ensure that PROC_FS was enabled if SUNRPC_GSS was enabled.
Apparently this isn't necessary because the auth_gss components under
net/sunrpc will build correctly even if PROC_FS is disabled, though
RPCSEC_GSS will not work without /proc.
It also violates the guideline in Documentation/kbuild/kconfig-language.txt
that states "In general use select only for non-visible symbols (no prompts
anywhere) and for symbols with no dependencies."
To address these issues, remove the dependency.
