intel-iommu: Kill DMAR_BROKEN_GFX_WA option.

Just make it depend on BROKEN for now, in case people scream really loud
about it (and because we might want to keep some of this logic for an
upcoming BIOS workaround, so I don't just want to rip it out entirely
just yet). But for graphics devices, it really ought to be unnecessary.

If you encounter issues with graphics devices, you can try adding
option intel_iommu=igfx_off to turn off the integrated graphics engine.
If it happens to be a PCI device included in the INCLUDE_ALL Engine,
then try enabling CONFIG_DMAR_GFX_WA to setup a 1-1 map. We hear
graphics drivers may be in process of using DMA api's in the near
future and at that time this option can be yanked out.
If this fixes anything, please ensure you file a bug reporting the problem.
