Remove the 'syslog' input

Description

There are too many incompatible syslog message implementations and additionally too many incompatible syslog protocols, and quite frequently users report syslog problems in logstash which are simply protocol-violations from the applications writing to syslog.

In order to make user support more scalable, I propose dropping the syslog input in favor of documentation that helps users learn how to use tcp input, grok filter, and date filter to achieve roughly the same thing.
