It's still enabled for vmwgfx for which it is reasonably well tested and
where I can't see any such errors.

The code we remove with this patch enables huge page-table entries in
some circumstances for other drivers, but given the problems you're
seeing for amdgpu, it's better to enable this on a per-driver basis
after thorough testing. Since I don't have amdgpu hardware I'm not sure
what it's doing differently, and can't debug the issue properly.
