The rationale was that since we can set the cursor-type per-buffer,
we should also be able to set the blink off state in a buffer-local manner.

However, this can be achieved by making blink-cursor-alist buffer
local and set that, so this is indeed superfluous.

I'll remove it.

The doc-string said so, but in practice, the blink-cursor-alist was
only consulted when setting the cursor-type frame parameter; the
blink-cursor-alist was not consulted if the (buffer-local) variable
cursor-type was set to a specific cursor type.
