Ideally that sort of detail comes from the device tree. Otherwise old
kernels will be unable to run on new hardware which supports more memory.

Actually looking at where we use it, it seems like we don't it to come
from the device tree.

Seems core IMC only ever uses one page.

Thread IMC gets the size indirectly via the device tree:

if (of_property_read_u32(parent, "size", &pmu_ptr->counter_mem_size))

So we should be able to dynamically size vbase.
