Just looked at that document. Funny how they actually put details about
the kernel implementation (the static mapping address) into a hardware

This had escaped me so far. I think we should put this into the device tree
so that the representation of devices in the .dts file matches the one in
the manual, like this

	vc-bus {
		compatible = "simple-bus";
		#address-cells = <1>;
		#size-cells = <1>;
		ranges = <0x20000000 0x7e000000 0x02000000>;

		other devices {
