+Allwinner sunxi Message Box
+===========================
+
+The hardware message box on sunxi SoCs is a two-user mailbox controller
+containing 8 unidirectional FIFOs bonded into 4 bidirectional mailbox channels.
+An interrupt is raised for received messages, but software must poll to know
+when a transmitted message has been acknowledged by the remote user.
+
+Refer to ./mailbox.txt for generic information about mailbox device-tree
+bindings.
+
+Mailbox Device Node:
+====================
+
+Required properties:
+--------------------
+- compatible: Must be "allwinner,sunxi-msgbox".
+- reg: Contains the mailbox register address range (base
+ address and length).
+- clocks: phandle for the clock controller and specifier.
+- clock-names: Must be "bus".
+- resets: phandle for the reset controller and specifier.
+- reset-names: Must be "bus".
+- interrupts: Contains interrupt information for the mailbox.
+- #mbox-cells Must be 2 - the indexes of the transmit and receive
+ channels, respectively.
+
+Example:
+--------
+
+ msgbox: mailbox@1c17000 {
+ compatible = "allwinner,sunxi-msgbox";
+ reg = <0x01c17000 0x1000>;
+ clocks = <&ccu CLK_BUS_MSGBOX>;
+ clock-names = "bus";
+ resets = <&ccu RST_BUS_MSGBOX>;
+ reset-names = "bus";
+ interrupts = <GIC_SPI 49 IRQ_TYPE_LEVEL_HIGH>;
+ #mbox-cells = <2>;
+ };
