Subject[PATCH v9 25/27] PCI: dwc: Set coherent DMA-mask on MSI-address allocation
The MSI target address requires to be reserved within the lowest 4GB
memory in order to support the PCIe peripherals with no 64-bit MSI TLPs
support. Since the allocation is done from the DMA-coherent memory let's
modify the allocation procedure to setting the coherent DMA-mask only and
avoiding the streaming DMA-mask modification. Thus at least the streaming
DMA operations would work with no artificial limitations. It will be
specifically useful for the eDMA-capable controllers so the corresponding
DMA-engine clients would map the DMA buffers with no need in the SWIOTLB
intervention for the buffers allocated above the 4GB memory region.

While at it let's add a brief comment about the reason of having the MSI
target address allocated from the DMA-coherent memory limited with the 4GB
upper bound.
