This causes it to use the caller-provided buffer to read the ranges
property, which may not be large enough in the case of dt_xlate_addr().
Plus, buf being a pointer rather than an array will cause the sizeof(buf)
that gets passed to getprop() to be only sizeof(u32 *).

Instead, I'd declare "rangebuf" as a static array, and accept "regbuf" as
a parameter (with a comment that regbuf can alias rangebuf).  Then,
dt_xlate_reg() can use rangebuf as regbuf, dt_xlate_addr()'s caller
doesn't have to worry about its buffer being big enough to hold ranges,
and we don't have to allocate two 384-byte buffers on the stack.
