In commit 2bf1071a8d50 ("powerpc/64s: Remove POWER9 DD1 support") the
function __switch_to remove usage for 'dummy_copy_buffer'. Since it is
not used anywhere else, remove it completely.

This remove the following warning:

  arch/powerpc/kernel/process.c:1156:17: error: 'dummy_copy_buffer' defined but not used [-Werror=unused-const-variable=]
