Sorry for the delay in reply. Bharat finally got time to do some
investigation to confirm the following:

These USB controllers indeed can address 64-bit. However, on the bus
internally, only 40-bits are connected to the interconnect of CCN. As a
result, the 'dma-ranges' should be modified to address 40-bit in size.

We also have a somewhat related question, is it true that since v5.10,
defining of 'dma-ranges' on the bus node where its child device node has
implication of IOMMU usage (through 'iommus' or 'iommu-map') is now
mandatory? My understanding is that the 'dma-ranges' in this scheme will
define the IOVA address to system address mapping required by all
devices on that bus. Please help to confirm if my understanding is correct.
