The device tree binding defines 0 as "mapped to CPU" and 1 as "mapped
to X device". This matches the value written to the configuration
register for the SRAM blocks currently supported. However, the not yet
supported VE SRAM block is claimed for the device by writing 0x7fffffff,
which is vastly different from the other blocks. On the A64, SRAM C is
claimed by the device by writing a 0, which is the opposite of the current

This allows us to keep the convention currently used in the device tree

Some amendments to the commit message above. Code looks good.
