[PATCH 2.6] I2C: Delete useless instruction in it87

Hi Greg,

The IT8705F doesn't support VID, so it's quite pointless to give a value
to it (and an arbitrary one at that). I think that this instruction was
there for compatibility reasons some times ago, but the reasons went
away while the instruction was left in place. We can safely delete it
now.

Thanks to Rudolf Marek for testing the patch (you never know).

Please apply,
thanks.
