Arnd,

Why do think so? I see in arch/arm/boot/dts/keystone.dtsi

        soc {
                #address-cells = <1>;
                #size-cells = <1>;
                compatible = "ti,keystone","simple-bus";
                interrupt-parent = <&gic>;
                ranges = <0x0 0x0 0x0 0xc0000000>;
                dma-ranges = <0x80000000 0x8 0x00000000 0x80000000>;

AFAIK, On Keystone, dma address is 32 bit and Physical DDR address is
64 bit (actually 36 bit, LPAE address). The conversion happens based on
pfn_offset which is calculated based on the above dma-range property.

Not sure why? Keystone is that platform where they are different.
