the actual problem is "me" as I have conflicting information:
- Amlogic's buildroot kernel (for G12A) uses similar bus definitions
as the GX SoCs (for which there are public datasheets) - this is how
Jianxin added it to meson-g12a.dtsi originally
- this patch does it different - but cannot check if this is correct
(no public datasheet is available for G12A or AXG) nor do I have a
"big picture" of upcoming changes

Cc'ing Jianxin: can you please review Jerome's patch and give some
more details on the memory map on G12A so further contributions can be
reviewed easier?
