CHROMIUMOS: config: disable uevent helper

We've enabled this historically but set the default path to "" and
nothing at runtime changed that which meant it wasn't actually used
anywhere.  Instead, we rely on standard udev processing netlink
messages and udev rules for hotplug behavior.

This knob can be used to subvert overall security at runtime by
changing /proc/sys/kernel/hotplug to point to arbitrary programs.

TEST=precq passes
