Remove kgio and unicorn (and kcar) as dependencies.

kgio should not be necessary for Ruby 2.3 users, and I'd
rather not depend on Ragel or C any longer.

In retrospect, I think my decision to start kgio removed enough
impetus from improving non-blocking I/O in Ruby that Ruby was
set back several years because of it.

I think the only thing we really need C extensions for is
epoll/kqueue; and that might even be reasonably done with fiddle
nowadays (or ffi) since kernel ABIs are guaranteed to be stable.

Dunno what the timeline would be, but this is definitely
a long-term plan.

I've actually been enjoying Danga::Socket in Perl5 land which
uses Sys::Syscall under Linux.
