board/pc: drop unused grub-efi.cfg file
Following commit fee29b05bb7db25e37c8a5175ce00dc712554edf ("configs/pc_x86_64_efi: use a GPT partition table"), board/pc/grub-efi.cfg is no longer used anywhere: the post-image-efi-gpt.sh script generates the grub configuration. Also, since post-image-efi-gpt.sh generates a grub configuration file that uses the root filesystem partition UUID as the root= kernel argument, the instructions in the readme.txt file to tweak root= from /dev/sda2 to /dev/vda2 is no longer relevant. This was noted in the commit log of fee29b05bb7db25e37c8a5175ce00dc712554edf: The root filesystem location is passed to the kernel by a partition UUID, so it is possible to boot on QEMU, directly from the disk image, or dump the image to a physical device.
