From: Joel Granados <j.granados at samsung.com>

This commit comes at the tail end of a greater effort to remove the
empty elements at the end of the ctl_table arrays (sentinels) which
will reduce the overall build time size of the kernel and run time
memory bloat by ~64 bytes per sentinel (further information Link :

Remove sentinel element from riscv_v_default_vstate_table. This removal
is safe because register_sysctl implicitly uses ARRAY_SIZE() in addition
to checking for the sentinel.
