Subject[PATCH -mm 3/6] powerpc: remove DMA 4GB boundary protection
From
Previously, during initialization of the IOMMU tables, the last entry
at each 4GB boundary is marked as used since there are many adapters
which cannot handle DMAing across any 4GB boundary.

The IOMMU doesn't allocate a memory area spanning LLD's segment
boundary anymore. The segment boundary of devices are set to 4GB by
default. So we can remove 4GB boundary protection now.
