fsl_booke_entry_mapping.S creates a 64M entry.  The 4K entry is only
temporary while in AS1 -- it shouldn't matter if the address you return
to when leaving fsl_booke_entry_mapping.S is outside the 4K, as long as
it's within the 64M entry.

Or am I missing something?

Yes, I meant a timebase loop, not udelay().

It would be good if you could get the hardware designers to provide an
upper bound for how long we need to wait.
