I completely missed this change in the past, and I don't really agree
with it either.

Most 32-bit Arm platforms are in fact limited to 32-bit DMA, even when they have
MMIO or RAM areas above the 4GB boundary that require LPAE.

This is of course a good idea, drivers should work with any
combination of 32-bit
or 64-bit phys_addr_t and dma_addr_t.
