What does this MR do and why?

panfrost: remove panfrost_create_shader_state() related dead code

The pointer "xfb" is allocated with a clone of "so->nir" and lost
without further processing.

The function panfrost_shader_compile() was the one processing "xfb".
The call of this function was removed with the commit 40372bd720fe.
This makes "xfb" not required anymore.

For instance, this issue is triggered on a Mali-T820 with
"piglit/bin/arb_transform_feedback2-change-objects-while-paused -auto":
Indirect leak of 32776 byte(s) in 1 object(s) allocated from:
