Removed, during the merge, I suppose.
It was a dead code. If we'll ever need to restore it, we can always copy
it from 5.3 again.

Besides, as far as I understand, "until the version 5.5" does not
neassarily mean "up to and including the version 5.5". Thus, we've kept
IBMDB2I "until the version 5.5", indeed.
