I've moved this into infinity_barriers_init() using ioremap() as suggested.
I'd like to keep the fixed remap address for now as there are some
drivers in the vendor code that might be useful until rewrites are done but
are littered with hard coded addresses.

It's possible there is a better way once I can find out what the L3 bridge
actually is. There is a small amount of documentation for the miu (DDR
controller) that says it has an 8 or 4 operation configurable pipeline but
this flushing bit is in a totally different area that's only documented
by the comment about it in u-boot.

Fixed.

I've taken the lock out and tested that the ethernet isn't sending garbage
and everything looks good.

I'm still hoping for some feedback on the other parts of the series.
I'll post a v2 series in a few days.

Thanks!

Daniel
