[PATCH] m68k/amiga: Reclaim Chip RAM for PPC exception handlers

On m68k, it doesn't make sense to reserve memory for the PPC exception
handlers, and APUS support is dead.

Or does this impact Amigas with APUS boards running in m68k mode?
As we don't (no longer) modify the start address, we were actually stealing the
_last_ 4 pages.

when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
