Revert "x86/mm: Limit mmap() of /dev/mem to valid physical addresses"

This reverts commit ce56a86e.

There's unanticipated interaction with some boot parameters like 'mem=',
which now cause the new checks via valid_mmap_phys_addr_range() to be too
restrictive, crashing a Qemu bootup in fact, as reported by Fengguang Wu.

So while the motivation of the change is still entirely valid, we
need a few more rounds of testing to get it right - it's way too late
after -rc6, so revert it for now.
