As a side-effect of the kernel VA layout changes in OS-6606, we can no longer naively accept the system-provided plat_dr_physmax value - we end up bumping into the VA hole.

As this code is likely badly rotted anyway - if it ever worked - we'll just explicitly disable it by forcing plat_dr_physmax to zero.

For now, though, we won't make any attempt at removing any of the x86 DR code here.
