Deprecate confusing blockmaxsize, fix getmininginfo output

* This removes block-size-limiting code in favor of GBT clients
  doing the limiting themselves (if at all).
* -blockmaxsize is deprecated and only used to calculate an implied
  blockmaxweight, addressing confusion from multiple users.
* getmininginfo's currentblocksize return value was returning
  garbage values, and has been removed, also removing a
  GetSerializeSize call in some block generation inner loops and
  potentially addressing some performance edge cases.
