OK, after talking to Robin about it, I think I will indeed drop the whole usage of xlnx,addrwidth altogether.
Some thoughts:
- An integrator would choose the addrwidth value in the IP to be big enough for the whole bus. In our case it's actually 40 bits, because this is the max address size the interconnect supports. So any possible physical address the kernel could come up with would be valid for the DMA IP.
- Because of this we set the DMA mask to either 64-bit or 32-bit, depending on the auto detection of the MSB registers.
- If some integrator screws this up anyway, they can always set dma-ranges in the parent to limit the address range. IIUC, no further code would be needed in the Ethernet driver, as this would be handled by some (DMA?) framework?

Does that make sense?

Cheers,
Andre
