Don't hardcode the lookup start level of the page table walk to 1
and instead match the one used in P2M. This should fix scenarios
involving SMMU where the start level is different than 1.

Thank you for the patch, I think it is correct, except that smmu.c today
can be enabled even on arm32 builds, where p2m_root_level would be

We need to initialize p2m_root_level at the beginning of
setup_virt_paging under the #ifdef CONFIG_ARM_32. We can statically
initialize it to 1 in that case. Or...

IMHO, this is going to make the code quite confusing given that only the
SMMU would use this variable for arm32.

The P2M root level also cannot be changed by the SMMU (at least for
now). So I would suggest to introduce a helper (maybe
p2m_get_root_level()) and use it in the SMMU code.

An alternative would be to move the definition of P2M_ROOT_{ORDER,
LEVEL} in p2m.h

Alright, I'll go with this second option if that's ok with you.

I am fine with that.
