Currently, we don't have systems with 256 GB or more memory
but I am sure quite a few organizations are working on server
class RISC-V.

Let's not force RV64 physical memory limit to 128GB by
removing MAXPHYSMEM_128GB. On the contrary, I suggest
to have more options such as MAXPHYSMEM_256GB,
MAXPHYSMEM_512GB, and MAXPHYSMEM_1TB.

Regards,
Anup
