I'm still concerned about the use of the redirection mapping here,
the relocation at 0xc3f000c is used a convenience thing so that the
command db can be relocated, but because of how Linux will consume any
non-reserved memory the dts would still need to be manually updated.

This location is fixed and it is not expected to change between
different boards. OEMs may change the actual address of the command db
location, but would not change the dictionary location.

As such I think you should just describe only the 0x85fe0000 + 0x20000
region here and to support the dynamic aspect of this from a system
point of view you can have the boot loader read the information at
0xc3f000c and adjust the reserved memory. (Or just keep the step of
manually update the dts without caring about the indirection)

It would be incorrect and very board specific to just use the 0x85fe000
as the address. It is not how the SoC defines the location. Upon request
earlier, this memory location was added in DT and the location is
typical reference platform usage only.
