Is there really a point to doing that? Do 32-bit ARM systems even have
enough address space to the map the BARs of the AMD GPUs that need
this support?

Given that this was not enabled before, I don't think the upshot of
this series should be that we enable support for something on 32-bit
ARM that may cause headaches down the road without any benefit.

So I'd prefer a fixup patch that opts ARM out of this over adding
support code for 64-bit conversions.
