As per Host Spec, When Host Version 4 is enabled, DMA_SELECT options supported are
00: SDMA
01: Not Used
10: ADMA2
11: ADMA2 or ADMA3

When Host Version 4 is disabled, DMA_SELECT options supported are
00: SDMA
01: Not Used
10: 32-Bit addressing ADMA2
11: 64-Bit addressing ADMA2

Version 4 is enabled for CQE and need to use ADMA3 DMA Select. ADMA3 enables host to program multiple ADMA2 operations.
CQE need to fetch both task descriptor and transfer descriptor and should use ADMA3.
ADMA3 is supported with both 32-bit and 64-bit addressing modes.
SDHCI driver has DMA select options defined as per Host versions below 4 and using ADMA32, ADMA64 which are equivalent to ADMA2 and ADMA3 for Host V4.
If using same ADMA64 is adding confusion, probably I can add define ADMA3_CQE with same b'11 to avoid confusion. Please let me know.
