You have a needless extra set of parents here.

The replacement code is not equivalent. I can't recall why the original
is as it is, but it doesn't look right to me. The 2MB round down
certainly looks suspicious.

The replacement code should be better. However I'd like you to get an
ACK from Rob Herring as well for this patch.

Once that is sorted out, you can add
