This patch removes a driver that I have written some time ago to fool vfh driver which needs laser data for its operation (so I couldn't use it with Roomba robots typically not equiped with any laser device, however every Roomba robot has bumpers). Now after I successfully added (to Player) driver called 'goto' (which can use 'stall' field of position2d interface to manage with collisions), bumper2laser is not needed anymore. There are two more reasons why it should be removed:
1. Whole idea was wrong (that's why it ended in writing whole 'goto' driver), bumper is not a ranger device and therefore it shouldn't be treated like that
2. Laser interface is deprecated, this driver should provide ranger interface, however since there's no use for it, there's no plan for upgrade.
