We have two options here:

 1/ We can ask the mach-mvebu maintainers to provide a branch with just
    the commit implementing mv_mbus_dram_info_nooverlap(), and you
    merge that branch into your tree as a dependency.

 2/ We temporarily revert back to using mv_mbus_dram_info(). For the
    vast majority of platforms, this is OK. It's only if you have 4 GB
    of RAM or more that it causes problem. And then we switch to
    mv_mbus_dram_info_nooverlap() as part of the -rc cycle.

(2) is probably easier. Herbert, what do you think?
