Hi Matt,

  I will move those functions/macros to the arm-stub.c file.  I agree
that the macros should go there, as they are the arm specific versions
and conflict with the x86 versions defined elsewhere.  These were
there before the arm-stub.c file was added and didn't get moved when
it was.  The get_dram_base() function is only used by arm/arm64, but
there is nothing architecture specific about it, which is why I put it
here to begin with.  I don't feel strongly about this either way.
