On this platform, the current code is obviously broken, because the pointer
is 32-bit wide and cannot reach the registers. I assume you agree on that
part.

With my patch, the 64-bit resource_size_t in dw_mci helps get the
correct FIFO address to this line:

cfg.dst_addr = host->phy_regs + fifo_offset;

There, it remains broken because of the dma_addr_t being too short, and
we also need Linus' patch from https://lkml.org/lkml/2013/4/26/120 in
addition to mine.

I think some people have argued in the past that we should always use
the same type for dma_addr_t, resource_size_t and phys_addr_t. That
would certainly fix the problem you describe as well. In practice,
everyone has that already, and my patch by itself fixes all the
cases where the FIFO is at a high address and dma_addr_t is already
64-bit wide.

> In case of bounce buffers I can't understand how it helps there.

Right, bounce buffers are irrelevant here, because the FIFO address
is never translated and never bounced.
