AXI-USB IP configurable for 32-bit or 64-bit addressing.

In any of the configuration I mean if it is a 32-bit or 64-bit addressing there is a flexibility for the dma to choose the
Memory range supported by the AXI-USB...

For example if AXI-USB (dma ) is configured for 40-bit addressing.

Theoretically it can access memory up to 1TB if it is true we can get the
Address width using log2 of the dma-ranges size as you mentioned above.

But in real use case user won't map the entire memory
He will map only the memory of his own choice...

For example user mapped 2GB then dma-ranges property will be like below.

dma-ranges = <0x00000000 0x00000000 0x80000000>;

In this case log2 of the dma-ranges size won't give exact value for address width.
That's why used separate h/w property for getting address width of the IP...

Will address the remaining comments in v2.
