As we use only 4K page in Xen yes. I kept it because there is few place
where the SMMU configuration is not the same.

If we want to support 64K page in the future it will harder to had
support if this stuff is removed.

The constant was added by himself as it doesn't exists on Xen. I can
move it into the generic code.
