doc: postpone unaccomplished deprecation notices
Some work remains for VDEV bus move. Not sure if there will be some API or ABI changes. The notice is kept and postponed until the end of this rework. The PCI fields must be removed from cryptodev and the newly introduced eventdev, in order to complete the bus rework. The VLAN flags rework should be completed in 17.08.
