can you explain which "memory map" you are reading exactly?

my source is the "memory map" section in the public S905X and S912 datasheets:
- "S912_Datasheet_V0.220170314publicversion-Wesion.pdf" page 48
- "S905X_Datasheet V0.3 20170314publicversion-Wesion.pdf" page 43

in the GXL and GXM datasheets from above there is:
range: 0xC8100000 - 0xC81FFFFF
name: RTI

thus in my opinion, based on the two datasheets from above:
- the bus definition (start, size) in meson-gx.dtsi is fine
- probably have the wrong name for this bus in meson-gx.dtsi
- (assuming that GXBB, GXL and GXM are all the same - I only compared
the last two)

I fully agree on this one!
