Beware. Things may not be that trivial when you start considering some
of the weirdnesses that some vendors start coming out with.

It is preferable to use the same mapping, as it ensures that you're not
going to create incompatible aliases.
But, before we get too bogged down with this, please realise that it is
possible to setup early mappings from the device tree for things like the
SCU. Maybe not using ioremap(), but I'm sure we can find some way to use
the iotable_init() stuff to setup some early mappings from DT for this
