    sysdev-application-debugging: remove strip command that causes confusion
    The lab instructions consist in:
     *) building the app without debugging symbols, strip it and copy it
      to the target. Test strace.
     *) rebuild the app with -g to be used by gdb. But at this point, we
      were giving a command line to strip the app on the target. This is
      causing confusion because it has already been done previously, and
      therefore participants think they should strip the app on the host
      machine (which they shouldn't, otherwise gdb doesn't work properly
      since debugging symbols are lost).
    Simply remove this stripping command, which shouldn't be here.
