delete bsearch.c and bsearch.h from source tree

they are not referenced in CMakeLists.txt (so says grep)

* bsearch - binary search an array of elements
* @key: pointer to item being searched for
* @base: pointer to data to sort
* @num: number of elements
* @size: size of each element
* @cmp: pointer to comparison function
* This function does a binary search on the given array. The
* contents of the array should already be in ascending sorted order
* under the provided comparison function.
* Note that the key need not have the same type as the elements in
* the array, e.g. key could be a string and the comparison function
* could compare the string with the struct's name field. However, if
* the key and elements in the array are of the same type, you can use
* the same comparison function for both sort() and bsearch().

return NULL;

} else if (result > 0) {
