iommu/amd: Set exclusion range correctly

commit 3c677d206210f53a4be972211066c0f1cd47fe12 upstream.

The exlcusion range limit register needs to contain the
base-address of the last page that is part of the range, as
bits 0-11 of this register are treated as 0xfff by the
hardware for comparisons.

So correctly set the exclusion range in the hardware to the
last page which is _in_ the range.
