Its not a NOP, otherwise we'd remove it, AGP || AGP=n means if
AGP is enabled DRM must be enabled similiarly, it stops AGP=m + DRM=y
basically.

The generic code never calls this only the driver, so there should be no
need for flags at all.

Its mostly used in UMS to inform userspace for some strange reason
its pretty legacy at this point, new driver should probably not hit it.
