[requirements][all] migration OFF of mock to the unittest.mock built-in library

I'd like to suggest, now that we are on modern python, that we stop
using the mock library and instead use the built in mock library.

unittest.mock has been around since python-3.3 so we should not have a
problem with python support.  This would allow us to drop a library and
also help prevent issues with stuff like
https://review.opendev.org/712713 is going to expose (nova/neutron fail
tests with the external mock-4 library).
