ARM: tegra: Restrict usable RAM to 32-bit on 64-bit SoCs

Most peripherals on Tegra can do DMA only to the lower 32-bit
address space, even on 64-bit SoCs. This limitation is
typically overcome by the use of an IOMMU. Since the IOMMU is
not entirely trivial to set up and serves no other purpose
(I/O protection, ...) in U-Boot, restrict 64-bit Tegra SoCs to
the lower 32-bit address space for RAM. This ensures that the
physical addresses of buffers that are programmed into the
various DMA engines are valid and don't alias to lower addresses.
