Depends what your point of view is: The address map allocates 64KB worth
of space for the device, but the device itself only decodes the first
4KB of that. My view is that the DT is describing the actual devices,
not the interconnect routing between them, so there's really no need to
tell consumers to map known-useless empty space.
