This series improves on commit 20cde694027e (x86, ia64: Move EFI_FB
vga_default_device() initialization to pci_vga_fixup()):
- cleanup remaining but always-true #ifndefs
- fix boot regression on dual-GPU Macs

Andreas, can you please test this series? It is a modification from
previous testing patch that should still work fine for you.
That testing patch would have been failing X startup on old BIOS systems
booted with vga=normal (or otherwise in VGA text mode).

Greg, in case you have scheduled above-mentioned commit for your next
stable iteration, please hold it back in the queue until this follow-up
has landed and can be included within the same stable update as alone
that patch regresses for Macs with dual-GPU and using efifb.
