NSS and gskit are getting the axe

I have not received any loud complaints recently even after having repeatedly
mentioned that this is going to happen in August 2023, so we now have two PRs

   Remove NSS [1] and Remove gskit [2]

Both backends are used sparesly in modern curl. In addition, the gskit one
suffers badly from no tests/CI jobs.

In total these two changes remove some 5,000 lines of code and docs.
