How about:

IVA MMU can manage up to 4GB of address space through its page tables,
given that it's L1 is divided into 1MB sections it requires at least
16KB for its table which represents 4096 entries of 32 bits each.

Previously, only 1GB was being handled by setting the page table size
to 4KB, any virtual address beyond of the L1 size used, would fall
into memory that does not belong to L1 translation tables, leading to
unpredictable results.

So, set the L1 table size to cover the entire MMU range (4GB) whether
is meant to be used or not.

How about using SZ_16K instead, struct member name already specifies
it is L1 size, is the new define needed?
