Looks good to me. This seems like the right compromise for moving
forward to fix the problem.

A few notes:

* The only current SoC that uses tx2/rx2 is SDM845 and the support of
that SoC is in its infancy in mainline. Thus I don't mind that using
existing device trees with this new patch will print a warning and
continue to take advantage of the Linux "bug" that the whole page
could be accessed. We should fix the old DTS files ASAP and then
remove the nod to backward compatibility in the code.

* This should land _before_ dts patches land. If dts changes land
without this change then the old code will end up mapping tx2 and
using it as pcsmisc. either we'll need to delay landing the
device tree patch by one major version or Andy / Kishon will need to
