Normal deposit on a diesel, and indeed a lot of gas motors.
As long as it is not so thick it's not flaking off, leave well alone...removing it can and does drop some down into the first ring land area.

Only real reason to remove it is if you are pulling the pistons out.
Blow out the cylinders with compressed air or a vacumm cleaner and instal gasket and head.
