Subject[PATCH] brd: re-enable __GFP_HIGHMEM in brd_insert_page()
Date
__GFP_HIGHMEM is disabled if dax is enabled on brd, however
dax support for brd has been removed since commit (7a862fbbdec6
"brd: remove dax support"), so restore __GFP_HIGHMEM in
brd_insert_page().

Also remove the no longer applicable comments about DAX and highmem.

Fixes: 7a862fbbdec6 ("brd: remove dax support")
