While bringing up timer and irq, I had no luck without that mapping,
but I didn't try without later on. There is no driver requiring it,
as I either only use mainline drivers that never knew about A1500
before, or I have written it on my own (dw-apb-ictl).

I don't think it is required and will try to remove it, now that I
know I have set up core stuff correctly and it boots.

Scary but that reduces armada-1500.c to MACH descriptor and DT
compatible only ;) I don't expect any weird hacks required for
it anyway.
