Remove tag 'dh-manual-sequence-control-obsolete' from Lintian; cannot be tested due to debhelper changes.

Debhelper 12.4 dropped support for manual sequencing. The relevant
changelog entry is:

  * dh: Retroactively remove support for manual dh sequence
    operators (--until, --after, --before and --remaining).
    This breaks about 8 source packages that still rely on this
    feature and have not yet migrated away.  (Closes: #932537)
    Please see the debhelper bug for relevant bug numbers and
    package names.

Source packages using the mechanism are now FTBFS. The mechanism was
obsolete for some time and can no longer be used. It is untestable.

Removes the tag and its check from Lintian.

Severity: important
Certainty: certain
Check: debhelper
Info: The package uses one (or more) of the obsolete dh parameters
to control the debhelper command sequence. This method has been
deprecated and is now replaced by override targets. If you had:
install: build
dh install --before dh_auto_install
dh_auto_install -- PKG_DEST_DIR=`pwd`/debian/tmp/usr
dh install --after dh_auto_install
This should now be replaced by:
dh $@
dh_auto_install -- PKG_DEST_DIR=`pwd`/debian/tmp/usr
Please refer to the debhelper documentation for more information.
