powerpc/32: Pass device tree address as u64 to machine_init
u64 is used rather than phys_addr_t to keep things simple, as this is called from assembly code. Update callers to pass a 64-bit address in r3/r4. Other unused register assignments that were once parameters to machine_init are dropped. For FSL BookE, look up the physical address of the device tree from the effective address passed in r3 by the loader. This is required for situations where memory does not start at zero (due to AMP or IOMMU-less virtualization), and thus the IMA doesn't start at zero, and thus the device tree effective address does not equal the physical address.
