Subject: arm: dts: Fix missing device_type="memory" for ste-ccu8540

commit bfaed5abad998bfc88a66e6e71c7b08dcf82f04e upstream.

The current .dts for ste-ccu8540 lacks a 'device_type = "memory"' for
its memory node, relying on an old ppc quirk in order to discover its
memory. Fix the data so that all parsing code can handle it correctly.
