These values are arbitrary, not really ARM-specific even if ARM is the
only user yet: we're just reserving a random IOVA region for mapping MSIs.
It is hard-coded because of the way iommu-dma.c works, but I don't quite
remember why that allocation isn't dynamic.

As said on the v0.6 spec thread, I'm not sure allocating the IOVA range in
the host is preferable. With nested translation the guest has to map it
anyway, and I believe dealing with IOVA allocation should be left to the
guest when possible.

Thanks,
Jean
