That was my worry, devices not capable of accessing the full 64-bit
address space. We can hope that those SoCs would have an IOMMU but I
can't tell for sure at this stage.

The default implementation could be simpler. I can even drop it
altogether from the initial patchset given that no SoC makes use of it
yet.
