I imagine that 'abort' is a simple function. Is my imagination
incorrect? So you would like choose implementing a complicated queue
mechanism in mtk_cmdq driver rather than implementing abort function.
Maybe both are complicated.

I think the more important thing is that do you and maintainer agree to
implement abort function which could reduce mtk-self-queue in mtk_cmdq
driver. If the answer is yes, there could be two patch sequence A and B,
the patch sequence A is

A.1 mtk_cmdq driver with mtk-self-queue.
A.2 mtk display driver use mtk_cmdq without abort function.
A.3 add mailbox abort function
A.4 mtk_cmdq driver support abort function and remove mtk-self-queue.
A.5 mtk display driver use mtk_cmdq with abort function

And the patch sequence B is

B.1 add mailbox abort function
B.2 mtk_cmdq driver with abort function and no mtk-self-queue
B.3 mtk display driver use mtk_cmdq with abort function

Which one do you think is complicated?

So let's back to the more important thing: 'do you agree to implement
abort function which could reduce mtk-self-queue in mtk_cmdq driver?'

CK
