As far as I understood the issue from reading this series and also
talking a bit with Stanimir, there are multiple (physical?) ports from
the Venus hardware block and that includes one dedicated for firmware
loading, which has IOVA range restrictions up to 6 MiBs or something
like that.

If we add the firmware port to the iommus property of the main node,
we would bind it to the same IOVA address space as the other ports and
so it would be part of the main full 32-bit IOMMU domain.

Best regards,
Tomasz
