The defined in DT IRAM region used by VDE isn't exactly correct, actually it
should be much smaller. I don't know exactly what parts of IRAM VDE uses, for
now it is just safer to assign the rest of the IRAM region to VDE.

I'm not sure whether it really worthy to use a dynamic allocator for a single
static allocation, but maybe it would come handy later.. Stephen / Jon /
Thierry, what do you think?

Newer Tegra generations also have the IRAM, so I think Tegra30/114/124 DT's
should also include the same IRAM node for consistency. I'll extend your patch
to cover other Tegra's and include it in v4 if you don't mind and if Stephen /
Jon / Thierry would approve your proposal.

Thank you very much for taking a look at the patch!
