This is all exclusive in legacy code back from the days when drm
drivers where shared with *bsd. None of that code ever learned that
there's maybe a difference between dma/phys/virtual address sizes, and
that's about the least of the problems it has.

Revert seems to be clean, I'd vote for that. And maybe we instead try
to push these horrors more under the CONFIG_DRM_LEGACY. I'll try to
remember to do that, afaics the only thing outside are the
drm_pci_alloc/free multi-layered wrappers in drm_pci.c.

Linus, can you pls push the revert yourself, to avoid build bot
breakage for longer than necessary?

Thanks, Daniel
