Subject: [PATCH 6/8] riscv: Allow user to downgrade to sv39 when hw supports sv48

This is made possible by using the mmu-type property of the cpu node of
the device tree.

By default, the kernel will boot with 4-level page table if the hw supports
it but it can be interesting for the user to select 3-level page table as
it is less memory consuming and faster since it requires less memory
accesses in case of a TLB miss.
