Stop explicitly requiring pycodestyle

pip doesn't have a dependency resolver. Instead, it "simply uses the
first specification it finds for a project." [1] In Train, keystone
switched from hacking 0.12.x/0.13.x to hacking 1.1.x [2]. That change
explicitly added a pycodestyle dependency for reasons that aren't
entirely clear to me, but pip's broken dependency resolution leads to
the below funkiness when trying to install the dependencies.

  ERROR: flake8 2.6.2 has requirement pycodestyle<2.1,>=2.0, but you'll have pycodestyle 2.5.0 which is incompatible.

As seen below, this can be easily reproduced and seems to happen because
pip doesn't go further than one level of dependencies, meaning it knows
about the dependency on flake8<2.7.0,>=2.6.0 from hacking, but not the
dependency on pycodestyle<2.1,>=2.0 that this in-turn introduces.

  $ virtualenv venv
  $ source venv/bin/activate
  $ (venv) cat requirements.txt
  hacking>=1.1.0,<1.2.0 # Apache-2.0
  pycodestyle>=2.0.0 # MIT License

  $ pip install -r requirements-new.txt

The solution is simple: stop explicitly requiring this dependency and
instead rely on flake8 bringing it in.
