[lowrisc-dev] Address bit width

Hello Francesco,

I did not find this pALen variable in current Configs.scala.
However, even you managed to change this, it would not work.
The current Rocket chip uses Sv39 address model by default, that means 
39-bit physical address using 3-level page tables.
I think it is much more possible to expand the physical address width to 
39 and work out-straight.
More than 39, it will need some significant changes.
