This doesn't really give a good explanation of why you want to do this.
While it is certainly true that the aperture is fixed in size, I can
imagine cases where somebody would want to restrict the aperture size
(perhaps there's a fixed mapping somewhere near the end of the mapping
that Linux shouldn't touch, or the GART aperture could be reduced to
simulate out of IOVA memory situations).

Without a good explanation why this is necessary I don't see why the
current code should be changed.
