Obviously no need for AGP.

Can a DOM0 with no AGP run a DOMU with AGP or are there system dependencies?

There's 50446 which has the suggestion to just comment out AGP.  I
wonder if we should just remove the line altogether.  If someone ever
gets around to fixing the issue they can put it back.  In the meantime
why tempt people to un-comment it?

If there is general agreement I will make the change and also update the
PR so that the fixer knows to add the line back.
