However, to have use of the high physical offset, LPAE needs to be
enabled, which ensures that phys_addr_t is 64-bit.

I believe that DMA is non-coherent on this platform unless the high
physical address is used. Or something like that.

RMK's Patch system:
FTTP is here! 40Mbps down 10Mbps up. Decent connectivity at last!
