Requires only at the moment due to firmware..

This sounds like some firmware images hard-coded their vring addresses
instead of getting them dynamically as they should and we are hacking
around that on the kernel side by giving them the addresses they use as
carveouts.

Should we rather make use of the IOMMU attached to the DSP to map any
kernel address to the DSP where the firmware expects it? Or better yet
fixup the firmwares.

DRAM carveouts should be a last resort used only for when hardware
really requires it.
