Hi Julius,
the Cavium SoC expose the MMIO space at 1 << 47 with a size of 1 << 47.
As coreboot does use PA=VA mapping, I have to extend the VA space to 48
bit and that seems to work fine with 64KB granule.

The change in coreboot is minimal, I'm not sure if all armv8 CPUs
support's that granule, but a Kconfig should do for now.

I'd really want to avoid using a 4KB granule, as I'd have to implement
either level0 page talbes, or use PA!=VA mappings.
