Well let's face it AGP is a total headache to maintain and dead for at least 10+ years.
We have a lot of x86 specific stuff in the architecture independent graphics memory management to get the caching right, abusing the DMA API on multiple occasions, need to distinct between AGP and driver specific page tables etc etc...
So the idea here is to just go ahead and remove the support from Radeon and Nouveau and then drop the necessary code from TTM.
For Radeon this means that we just switch over to the driver specific page tables and everything should more or less continue to work.
For Nouveau I'm not 100% sure, but from the code it of hand looks like we can do it similar to Radeon.
Please comment what you think about this.
