[PATCH] arm64: fix CONFIG_ZONE_DMA on systems with no 32-bit addressable DRAM

Commit 2d5a5612bc (arm64: Limit the CMA buffer to 32-bit if ZONE_DMA)
forces the CMA buffer to be 32-bit addressable if CONFIG_ZONE_DMA is
defined. This breaks CMA on platforms with no 32-bit addressable DRAM.
This patch checks to make sure there is 32-bit addressable DRAM before
setting the 32-bit limit. If there is none, no limit is placed on the
CMA buffer. This allows a single kernel (with CONFIG_ZONE_DMA defined)
to support platforms requiring the 32-bit limit and platforms with no
32-bit limit.
