Subject: [PATCH v2 1/3] arm64: mm: update the comments about ZONE_DMA

Since patchset "arm64: Default to 32-bit wide ZONE_DMA", ZONE_DMA's
size is fine-tuned. In the absence of addressing limited masters,
ZONE_DMA will span the whole 32-bit address space, otherwise, in
the case of the Raspberry Pi 4, it'll only span the 30-bit address
space. Update the comments.
