If there is no memory below 4GB, the arm64 kernel assumes that the
32-bit devices will have some DMA offsets shifting the addresses to the
bottom of the available RAM. So even if RAM starts above 4GB, we
ZONE_DMA32 will be allocated in the bottom 4GB of the high memory (and
if the hardware designers forgot to shift those DMA accesses, we don't
have to support the platform ;)).

So the arm64 notion of low memory differs slightly from the x86 one.
