Remove HHVM from the test matrix on Travis

Maintaining the HHVM test infrastructure on Travis takes a disproportionately high amount of effort. Particularly because the HHVM build:

  • Is in the allowed failures list
  • Has never passed
  • Often errors

Given the exceptionally low usage numbers of HHVM, support in the Travis test suite should be removed.

The PHP world owes a lot to HHVM for helping it push it forward. Without HHVM, maybe we wouldn't have seen such incredible performance gains in PHP 7. Thank you, HHVM.
