That seemed like the right thing until I realized, its still specifying
the physical size, not the virtual size.

I don't think we can avoid making a new xxx-cells property for the virt
addr size.  Ben suggested adding #virt-address-cells to the root node.

I like the name but prefer putting it directly under "/cpus" because
the virt addr size is really determined by the cpu.  It doesn't matter
that much to me, though.
