The maximum width differs between Armada-XP (64-bit) and Armada-38x
(32-bit). There is still strapping to control half-width vs full-width.

In an earlier iteration I did have a DT property as you suggest. The
problem is that something like "bus-width = <32>" is ambiguous. On
Armada-XP this means the strapping is for half-width but on Armada-38x
you'd need to strap to full-width. That's why we settled on the mode
interpreting the strapping against SoC[1].
