Remove SSTableDeletingTask

      Description

      With CASSANDRA-4050 and CASSANDRA-6993, our out-of-order deletion problems w/regards to Windows are resolved and the only outstanding reason to have SSTableDeletingTask would be for support of non-sun VM's w/regards to mmap'ed files. As this is no longer a big concern in the Cassandra ecosystem (non-sun VM's), we should remove SSTableDeletingTask.

      The one caveat is that if we want to revisit mmap'ed I/O on Windows in the future we may need to re-use this type of "delayed deletion" approach due to Windows not allowing deletion of hard linked files w/memory-mapped segments in the original file, but CASSANDRA-5863 would obviate that concern.
