Delete the wildcard expansion feature

since that is now standard in find-file.
(PC-try-load-many-files): Function deleted.
(PC-after-load-many-files): Function deleted.
(PC-many-files-list): Variable deleted.
(PC-disable-wildcards): Variable deleted.
(partial-completion-mode): Don't enable the wildcard feature.
(PC-look-for-include-file): Don't set global variables
`error', `buf' and `filename' here.

Unless `PC-disable-wildcards' is non-nil, the \"*\" wildcard is interpreted
specially when entering file or directory names. For example,
\\[find-file] *.c RET finds each C file in the current directory, and
\\[find-file] */foo_bar.c TAB completes the directory name as far as possible.
Unless `PC-disable-includes' is non-nil, the \"<...>\" sequence is interpreted

\\[find-file] <sys/time.h> RET finds the file /usr/include/sys/time.h.
